Kanika Kapoor’s Public Statement
Kanika Kapoor has posted a pic on Twitter and Instagram which expresses her anger towards the fake news spreaders. She mentioned about her travel history, date of advisory release. She also mentioned that no one found Corona positive whoever she came in contact with from UK to Lucknow. Kanika Kapoor’s complete statement is mentioned below :
I know there are several versions of stories out there about me. Some of these seem to be
fuelled even more because I have chosen to be silent till now. I stayed quiet not because l
am wrong but in-fact being fully aware that there have been misunderstandings and wrong
exchanges of information. I was giving time for the truth to prevail and for people to reach
their own realisation. I thank my family, friends and supporters for allowing me the space to
talk when am ready. I hope and pray that you all are safe and being careful during this time.
Some facts that I would like to share with you. I am at home in Lucknow spending some
quality time with my parents :)
Every person that I have come in contact with be it in UK, Mumbai or Lucknow has shown
no symptoms of Covid 19, in-fact all those tested have been negative. I travelled from UK
to Mumbai on 10th March and was duly screened at the international airport. There was no
advisory on that day (UK travel advisory was released on 18 March) that stated that I
needed to quarantine myself. I showed no ill health so did not quarantine myself. I travelled
to Lucknow the following day on the 11th March to see my family. There was no screening
setup for domestic flights. On the 14th and 15th March I attended a friend's lunch & dinner.
There was no party hosted by me and I was in absolute normal health. I had symptoms on
the 17th and 18th March so I requested to be tested. I was tested on the 19th March and on
20th March when informed that my test was positive, I chose to go to the hospital. I was
discharged after 3 negative tests and have since been at home for 21 days. I want to
especially thank the doctors and nurses who have so graciously taken care of me during a
very emotionally testing time. I hope that all can deal with this matter with honesty and
Negativity thrown at a person does not change the Reality.
