Singer Kanika Kapoor has been discharged from the hospital where she was being treated for the coronavirus. The singer was tested negative for COVID-19 in the sixth report and on Monday, she was asked to leave for home, reported News 18. Even though the popular playback singer doesn’t have coronavirus now, she would still be tested once again to ensure that she’s not a possible carrier of the virus anymore. Kanika will also have to remain under isolation for 14 days.
The singer’s test reports came out on Saturday and she was declared corona-free by the doctors. Kanika battled with the coronavirus for over 15 days at Lucknow’s Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences. The singer had returned from the UK on March 9 and travelled to Lucknow and Kanpur from Mumbai. She also attended family gatherings and small parties with friends and relatives during the festival of Holi. However, Kanika didn’t know that she had contracted the virus until she experienced mild fever and dry cough and went to get tested.

The director of the hospital, Dr RK Dhiman, alleged that Kanika had been behaving like a star and not like a patient inside the hospital.
