Veteran director Singeetam Srinivasa Rao has tested positive for Covid 19. The director shared a video on social media revealing that he tested positive for Covid 19 on September 9. The 88-year-old also revealed he is in home quarantine.
He shared a video telling his fans that he is under home quarantine. He said in the video, ‘I have been getting a lot of phone calls and messages from press who wanted to do something on my birthday on September 21. I was not able to attend them because of a small incident… On the 9th of September I was declared Covid positive, I asked the doctor for 65 years I have been positive and suddenly you tell me I am positive, I have never been negative, I have always been positive, but they have declared that. I am now in home isolation. I have a separate room and the food is kept there and I am reminded of my hostel days, so everything is absolutely fine.’
He added, ‘There was also a CT scan that was taken, they have told me there is a mild infection and I am going to be in isolation up to September 22. After September 23, I will be out and going to enjoy my books. I thank all the people who have been trying to reach me and trying to get some news for my birthday… I want to say Covid is a pandemic and it is a serious thing and one has to be very very very careful. The mask, social distancing, all this has to be done. I did all that, inspite of that I don’t know how it attacked me. But man has always won the virus at any time in history of human mankind. Therefore, we will all finally win.’
