Singer Kanika Kapoor has been tested positive in her third COVID19 test as well. The reports of the third test came in on Tuesday night and stated that she has coronavirus. She is undergoing treatment at the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) in Lucknow. SGPGIMS Director Prof RK Dhiman said that the singer’s treatment will continue until at least two tests show her negative.
On Wednesday, Prince Charles tested positive for Coronavirus. The Clarence House confirmed that the 71-year-old had been diagnosed with the COVID-19 disease in a statement released this morning. "The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus. He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days, as usual," said the statement.
"The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus. In accordance with government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland," it added.
A picture of the royal with Kanika Kapoor has been surfacing on the Internet. Soon after the picture went viral, trolls have been attacking the Baby Doll singer and blaming her for having infected Charles with coronavirus.
However, this stands untrue as a Deccan Chronicle report states that the viral picture is from a royal event in 2015. One of the viral pictures of Kanika, in an orange dress, chatting with Prince Charles, is from an event - the Elephant Family charity ‘Travels to my Elephants’ -- hosted by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in 2015.
While it takes 14 days for the symptoms to show, trolls went on to criticize Kanika for allegedly infecting Prince Charles with coronavirus. And as the report states that the picture is from 2015, it’s impossible the singer must have infected him several years ago, much before the coronavirus came into existence.
Kanika had been tested positive for coronavirus post her return from London. She was in Lucknow for a few days after her return and was also a part of few parties and gatherings. She received a lot of flak for allegedly hiding her travel details, and risking people’s lives by attending parties.
The singer had confirmed the news of testing positive for COVID-19 on her social media, however, she has now deleted the post.
Meanwhile, recent reports suggested that Kanika came in contact with close to 266 people, and more than 60 samples had been tested and all of them were negative.
