The Covid-19 wrath continues to engulf the Asian-subcontinent. The nation has observed a dramatic rise in coronavirus cases, despite the emergence of the Covid-19 vaccine. Actors are reported to be at a higher risk of contracting the novel coronavirus owing to their schedule and the proximity of people they come in contact with.
After Aamir Khan, veteran actor Dharmendra’s staff has contracted coronavirus suggests the recent ETimes report. Despite being administered with the vaccine, the recently tested staff’s diagnosis has flagged concerns for the actor.
The report suggests that about 3 people in the Deol household in Juhu Scheme have tested positive for COVID.
"But all said and done, every possible precaution and procedure is being followed. Even otherwise, the Deols have been very cautious and particular. The second wave which has come about is extremely mysterious and beating all logic," said the source quoted by ETimes.
The source added, "Let's hope that the employees who have tested positive in the Deol home get well soon. Importantly, it should not spread to those who had been around them in the past few days. Every precaution is being taken by Dharamji and his family to keep the COVID-infected staff completely isolated, no stone is being left unturned. Dharamji has been usually parking himself since the past few months in his farmhouse in Lonavala but today he is in Mumbai."
The ETimes report also quoted Dharmendra confirmed about the recent setback and said, "Well, I had got myself vaccinated and I am feeling fine. I have now undergone the COVID test, though. The result is expected by evening."
Veteran actor Dharmendra got himself vaccinated with the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on last Friday (March 20). The Apne star inspired his fans and encouraged them to get the vaccination by tweeting a video that featured him getting a shot of the vaccine on his left arm.
