Actor Deepika Padukone has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The news comes hours after it was confirmed to the media that ace badminton player and former World No. 1, Prakash Padukone, had tested positive for COVID-19. Deepika Padukone’s mother and younger sister have also tested positive for the virus. Prakash Padukone is currently admitted to a Bengaluru hospital where he is recovering from his illness and infection.
“Around 10 days back, Prakash, his wife (Ujjala) and second daughter (Anisha), they developed symptoms and got themselves tested and the results came out to be positive. They got themselves isolated but after a week Prakash’s fever didn’t come down, so last Saturday, he was admitted to a hospital here in Bengaluru. He is okay now. All his parameters are fine, his wife and daughter are at home and he too will be hopefully discharged in 2-3 days,” Prakash Padukone’s friend, Vimal Kumar had told PTI.
