The pandemic continues to be a reality and the recent surge in case has also accentuated that fact all the more as to how COVID-19 still cannot be taken lightly and one has to take all precautions possible. We have also seen many public figures contracting the virus over time and recently, the latest to join this unfortunate bandwagon was none other than actor Salil Ankola.
A day ago, he posted a picture of himself from the hospital and mentioned how he has contracted COVID-19. Now, in an interview with ETimes TV, Ankola opened up on how the experience was extremely scary for him. He said, "It all began when I was about to fly out to Jaipur and hence underwent a COVID test. I was shocked that the test came out positive." He added, "My oxygen level had dropped to 80 and I was rushed to AllCure- Super Speciality Hospital (Jogeshwari). I was breathless when I was wheeled in. Immediately, I was put on a ventilator. I was admitted on February 28 at 5 am. I developed cough and fever and now they say I have COVID-induced pneumonia."
He concluded saying, "It has been a scary time. I hope to be out of this in the next 7 days."
