The New Year started on a celebratory mode for Raai Laxmi, but just a few days into 2021, the actress tested positive for COVID-19. After being in isolation for over a week in Dubai, the actress redid the test and was declared ‘negative’ for the virus.
“I was just about to fly back to my home at that point. The institutional facility and the medical care was good, but it takes a toll on you mentally and physically. I’m so happy I’ve tested negative now,” says Laxmi, who is back in the country now.
She recently took to her social media to share a picture of her arm with a medical belt around it, and captioned it, “Times have changed. We all hope for negative results instead of positive (sic).” “I was anxious,” she says with a laugh, “There are still some symptoms. Like, I haven’t completely gotten my sense of smell back. But I’m recovering.”
