Actor Sameera Reddy took to Instagram to inform that she had tested positive for coronavirus. She added that her kids – Hans and Nyra and husband Akshai – have also tested positive to the virus.
She began by sharing how her son Hans was the first one to show the symptoms: “Lots of people asking me about Hans and Nyra so here is the update. The past week Hans had high fevers , headaches , body ache, upset tummy and severe fatigue . It lasted for 4 days . It was very unusual So we tested him and he was COVID positive. I have to admit initially I did feel complete panic because however much you think you are prepared, you just never completely are for something like this.”
She then revealed that her daughter Nyra was the next one to get affected. “Immediately Nyra started showing symptoms. She had fevers and upset tummy. I gave her cold compress and paracetamol on SoS,” she added.
She revealed how the second wave of coronavirus had been affecting children. “The most important thing is to be aware that the second wave is affecting many children but doctors believe that it has mild symptoms in most of the cases . Doctors are also recommending vitamin C, multivitamin. A probiotic and zinc (please check with your doctor ) I’ve done everything to make them comfortable and Both are in great spirits and back to being in masti mode It’s important to remember that even though Your kids might get asymptomatic in a few days they still have to be isolated from people who haven’t been affected for 14 days to make sure it is not transmitted.”
She added that her mother-in-law, Manjri Varde hasn’t been affected. “Luckily my mother in law was not exposed and is living separately. She has tested negative.”

This is the time to be smart and focus on what helps . Not negative . Not fearful . Just be alert to protect yourself and others. We have to be mindful of this . It is the only way .
