'In spite of being super careful,' Rhea contracted the virus
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Rhea wrote, "Yes I am positive for COVID-19 in spite of being super careful. But this is the nature of the pandemic. Not sure why my or anyone's private health information is news or gossip." "This information should only be for the government, medical bodies so that they can do their job and not on gossip sites," she added.
The actor had tested positive in September 2020 as well
To recall, Arjun had tested positive last September, too. He had announced it online and told everyone that he was asymptomatic. "It's my duty to inform all of you that I have tested positive for coronavirus. I'm feeling ok and I'm asymptomatic. I have isolated myself at home under the advice of doctors and will be under home quarantine," he had written then.
