In the last few weeks, a number of actors have tested positive for the deadly coronavirus. Now, actress Delnaaz Irani, on January 3, informed fans that she got infected with COVID-19. The actress shared that she has mild symptoms with a bit of throat pain. She is currently home quarantined while isolating herself from the family. Sharing a note on Instagram, Delnaaz stated that despite taking precautions, she has tested positive for COVID-19. She mentioned that it all started with shivering and high fever on New Year’s eve.
Delnaaz informed her followers that she has been following all the COVID-19 protocols, suggested by her doctor and health professionals.
