India reported almost 180,000 new cases of Covid-19 after Omicron hit the country in yet another wave of the virus. According to Reuters, the Omicron variant of the coronavirus continues to spread rapidly in the country, nudging several state governments to impose fresh restrictions.
Many Indian stars have already contracted the new variant of the coronavirus, with legendary playback singer Lata Mangeshkar being the latest celebrity to contract the disease. The Tere Liye crooner has already been shifted to the ICU of Mumbai's Breach Candy hospital, her niece confirmed to the Times of India.
Her spokesperson also shared, "Lata Didi showed mild Covid symptoms. So she has been kept in ICU under observation at the Breach Candy hospital as a precautionary measure. The family requests the media to let Lata didi rest and recover and come back home soon."
Earlier, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Amrita Arora, Sohail Khan’s wife Seema Khan and Sanjay Kapoor's wife Maheep Kapoor recovered after reportedly being infected at Karan Johar’s party. Soon after that, more celebrities have confirmed the news of testing positive and isolating.
Later, news of actor Arjun Kapoor and his sister, Anshula Kapoor, received a rather unfortunate surprise this year for her birthday. Coincidentally, the Ishaqzaade star, Anshula, their cousin and film producer Rhea Kapoor and her husband Karan Bolani all tested positive for Covid-19 on the eve of Anshula’s birthday.
