Veteran Pakistani actress, Marina Khan took to Instagram and broke the news to her fans that she has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently in isolation for the next 14 days.
In the video the Aulaad actor said, “I have Covid-19. This is me, my room and I am all alone for the next 14 days. I fought a lot, my friends would make fun of me now. I always had this idea of if it's meant to happen, it will. We'll deal with it at that time but when it really happens, that's when you realise [that it's very real].”
Khan added, “It's very real, it's out there. So far, I have fatigue but it's not as bad as earlier. Fever as well. Please look after yourselves. I shouldn’t have to dictate the necessary precautions we have to take to avoid Covid-19. I just have one thing to say: it’s Ramazan, it’s almost Eid. The fancy clothes, new clothes aren’t imperative. If you don’t wear new clothes one year, it’s not the end of the world.”
Khan urged the people to avoid shopping, she said, “Don’t go shopping in malls. Protect yourselves and others. It is not as if it isn’t contagious. It’s everywhere, look around you.”
Khan further added, “It’s devastating. I saw a BBC clip and reporting in India about the pandemic and I couldn’t believe it. Can we all please pray for them. I have very few followers from the other side of the border but a lot of people who follow me here would have a massive fan following there. Please ask everyone to pray for India.”
