The post reads, “Hi everybody, wanted to share a quick update with you. I had to go on Roadies. For that I had to undergo COVID tests. In the first two tests, I tested negative. But my today’s test result has come positive. The BMC has instructed me to stay in isolation, so I have isolated myself at home. I am waiting to be tested again because I feel there must be some technical error, because I am just fit and fine, I am not feeling unwell. I don’t think I have the disease because I don’t display any symptoms or traits. But it’s my duty to isolate myself and I assure you all that I am fit and fine. Please dont worry, I will keep you updated regarding my health. I have already started getting calls. I don’t know how people got this information so fast. Don’t worry, I will take care of myself. All of you please take care.” Also Read - Long Covid-19 in Kids Does Not Last More Than 12 Week, Says Study
