Actor Zarina Wahab had been admitted to Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital for five days last week after she tested positive to Covid-19. As per a Times of India report, Mrs Pancholi was put on oxygen support but the veteran actor responded to care before the service of a ventilator was required. The family wanted privacy and hence she was wheeled in quietly into the hospital and only a few of their closest friends and family were aware of the development. Dr. Jalil Parker of Lilavati Hospital in his statement to TOI said, “Zarina had pain in joints, bodyache, fatigue and fever. And, her oxygen level was low when we admitted her.” He later added, “She has gone home. She is much better now.” She is reportedly isolating at her home. It is not known if she has tested negative since.
A number of prominent B-town celebs like Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan, Genelia D'souza, Zoa Morani, Kiran Kumar, Rachel White have already tested positive for COVID-19. Her son Sooraj Pancholi's name came in news in connection to the death of celebrity manager Disha Salian. Zarina had told Bollywood Hungama in an interview: “I want to laugh it off as well as feel bad. People have so much free time during the lockdown, that they say anything about anyone. They are connecting past events, whereas he (Sooraj Pancholi) has never met that girl (Disha Salian). He keeps saying that he has not met her ever and still people do not believe.”
