Ayesha Singh who plays the lead role in Star Plus show ‘Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin’ recently contracted COVID. Fortunately, the actress bounced back quickly and is back on the sets of the show after being tested negative.
India Forums get in touch with Ayesha to know about her battle with COVID and her experience. The actress shared, “While there was a lot of panic regarding the third wave of COVID 1, there was also information available that the virus is giving mild symptoms this time around. It all began when I got fever and caught cold. I immediately quarantined myself as I had an intuition that I have contracted the virus even before testing. Once the result came positive, I continued to quarantine myself and take good care of myself”.
Talking about her quarantine schedule, Ayesha said, “Well, in the initial days, there wasn’t any schedule to follow as I was genuinely unwell. I had 102-103 degree fever and I couldn’t even move an eye-lid. The first five days just went like that but after going through those days, I started to feel a little better. I read a few books and watched shows online. Apart from keeping myself entertained, I focused more on taking proper rest and getting better as soon as possible”.
Talking about the production house and channel’s support, Ayesha said, “I can’t thank my production house and even the channel enough as they really took good care of me. Siddhartha Vankar was constantly in touch with me. The production house had sent me beautiful flower bouquet and when I joined back also, they presented flowers to me. I really loved that gesture.”
We asked the gorgeous actress to share some tips for people who’re battling COVID, Ayesha said, “Honestly, I believe everyone has a different body and things work differently for everyone. What I did that helped me a lot was strictly following my doctor’s advice. He advised me to have a lot of water and I’m still continuing to do the same. I had steam, healthy food and took a lot of rest. My mother used to make kadha for me and I’d drink that. I also used to have ginger and clove water during the initial period. One of the most important things that really makes a difference is a positive approach and a positive mind set. There shouldn’t be a room for panic. If you feel you’re not getting better, you should immediately seek doctors’ help”.
Way to go, Ayesha!
