Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor is the latest celebrity to be tested positive for COVID-19 or the coronavirus, on Friday. The singer, who shot to fame with her mega hit song ‘Baby Doll’, has been admitted to Lucknow’s King George’s Medical University (KGMU) hospital. Kanika is currently been kept in an isolation ward.
The singer was recently reported to be returning from London. Also, reports seem to suggest that Kanika was hosting a fancy party. The function was attended by many Indian bureaucrats, politicians and Bollywood celebrities. The party was held at a lavish apartment and medical officials are unsure whether to quarantine the singer and her guests or seal off the entire building.
“Some people have started approaching us for tests but we still do not know how to make the VIPs undergo tests,” said a doctor at the KGMU.
“A prominent Bollywood singer is among the four people who have been tested positive for #Coronavirus in Uttar Pradesh today,” ANI tweeted.
Kanika Kapoor is among the four people to have tested positive for the coronavirus pandemic in Uttar Pradesh. The ‘Baby Doll’ singer took to Instagram to advise her followers to practice self-isolation amidst the massive health scare.

Hello everyone, For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs. I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives. Wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind ! Take care, KK
