Kanika has recently recovered from COVID-19. The singer had contracted the deadly virus in March after which she was taken to the hospital and quarantined for a few weeks. After being discharged, the singer made a long post on Instagram in which she explained her journey of fighting the coronavirus and how she became the target of trolls. Kanika clarified that she had not opposed any rules or hid her medical history as many reports suggested. She said she had been cooperating well with the medical staff and is ready to help others who are fighting the disease. It was later reported that the singer tried to donate her plasma to help those who are infected with the virus but due to lack of required level of haemoglobin in her blood, she was denied from proceeding ahead.
