Bollywood actress, Sameera Reddy, her husband, Akshai Varde and their two kids, Hans Varde and Nyra Varde tested positive for Coronavirus. The number of rising cases of COVID-19 in India is making new records every single day. The governments of many states in India have imposed a lockdown of at least 15 days. The situation is getting worse with every passing day and amidst it, many families are hit by the deadly virus.
The latest addition to the list of COVID-19 infected celebrities is Sameera Reddy. On April 18, 2021, Sameera had announced that she was diagnosed with the virus. Taking to her Instagram handle, Sameera had revealed that she is in-home quarantine and is taking all the precautions. She had written, "I tested COVID positive yesterday. We are safe and taking necessary precautions. Sassy saasu by the grace of God has been living separately and is safe. We will be in home quarantine and will continue to be our positive upbeat selves." Check it out below:
Since then, everyone is wondering about Sameera's kids, Hans and Nyra. Taking to her Instagram handle, Sameera revealed that it was her son, Hans, who was first diagnosed with COVID-19. She shared, "Lots of people asking me about Hans and Nyra so here is the update. The past week Hans had high fevers, headaches, body ache, upset tummy and severe fatigue. It lasted for 4 days. It was very unusual So we tested him and he was COVID positive. I have to admit initially I did feel complete panic because however much you think you are prepared, you just never completely are for something like this."
Sameera further shared that after Hans, her daughter, Nyra had immediately started showing the same symptoms. She wrote, "Immediately Nyra started showing symptoms. She had fevers and an upset tummy. I gave her a cold compress and paracetamol on SoS. The most important thing is to be aware that the second wave is affecting many children but doctors believe that it has mild symptoms in most cases. Doctors are also recommending vitamin C, multivitamin. A probiotic and zinc (please check with your doctor ) I’ve done everything to make them comfortable and Both are in great spirits and back to being in masti mode."
She concluded her note by stating that after kids stop showing any symptoms, they still need to be in quarantine, "t’s important to remember that even though Your kids might get asymptomatic in a few days they still have to be isolated from people who haven’t been affected for 14 days to make sure it is not transmitted. Luckily my mother in law was not exposed and is living separately. She has tested negative. I and Akshai tested positive soon after the kids. We have started the medications, steam inhalation, salt water gargles, breathing exercises, pranayama and eating wholesome meals and are diligently following our doctor's recommendations. This is the time to be smart and focus on what helps. Not negative. Not fearful. Just be alert to protect yourself and others. We have to be mindful of this. It is the only way. I will continue to make my happy content because positivity is my biggest strength right now."
Well, we wish a speedy recovery for Sameera and her family!
