Giving her personal instance, she says she adopted each precaution doable. “People have been mislead by these things, that recovery rate is high, mortality rate is low, and beginning to get careless. This pandemic is there, and rising at an alarming rate. One gets surprised how the hell did they get it. I am very careful, masked, use sanitiser all the time, sanitise all surfaces, even my make up room, and despite that, I still caught it. This means it’s a strong strain of virus. We have to be careful and not become complacent,” tells us the 59-year-old.
Shivpuri had been taking pictures for a tv present and an commercial lately too. She says that the producer of her present was type sufficient to increase assist, “She recommended me the doctor, who helped me get a room. They went out of the way, and asked if I need money, I told them I am fine right now, but if there’s anything I would definitely tell them.”
Feeling higher now, the actor provides that originally, the panic units in. “You feel you can’t be the person who has got it, I had been praying. But the way it’s spreading around… I was shooting, so one is bound to come in contact with a Covid 19 positive person. I got it, then I was admitted in the hospital. Before that temperature had been high, I was imagining all sorts of things, imagination is the worst. As soon as I entered the hospital, my oxygen saturation level came to normal,” she tells us.
The remainder of Shivpuri’s household can also be in self isolation at their society house.

The poor dog has been trained to pee and poop outside, how can she suddenly do it inside the house? It’s torture for her. I want people to be aware, it’s been proved dogs are not Covid carriers. Other societies are allowing, ours has this weird rule, that nothing before 14 days of quarantine,” rues the actor.
