Veteran actor Kiran Kumar had recently tested positive for Coronavirus. Kumar was under quarantine at home. The 74-year-old had revealed that even though he had no symptoms of Covid-19 yet he tested positive for the virus on May 14 when he visited the hospital to get checked. Now, there’s good news for his fans as the actor has tested negative for the deadly virus.

Earlier the veteran actor had told PTI, “I am asymptomatic. On May 14, I went to the hospital for a medical check-up, where the Covid-19 test was mandatory. So I got myself tested and the result was positive but I had no symptoms then, nor do I have any now. There’s no fever, no cough, I’m fine and have self-quarantine.”

Now the ‘Dhadkan’ actor has tested negative for Covid-19 and he is really grateful to the doctors as he thanked them in his latest statement. The actor told Zee News, “It’s safe to say that things feel more than a little surreal at the moment. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a dystopia like this would be our everyday reality.”

Veteran Actor Kiran Kumar Ji’s 3rd Corona Test Report Has Come Negative: Here Is The Statement From Him: Its safe to say that things feel more than a little surreal at the moment. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a dystopia like this would be our everyday reality. But it is. A few weeks ago, I had to undergo a routine medical procedure for which, under the government's guideline at the time, a covid 19 test was mandatory. My daughter accompanied me for the testing and we joked and laughed and generally remained upbeat, certain that this was just a formality and we would get on with our normal lives soon enough. The test results came back positive. Within the hour, we cordoned off a floor at home and turned it into an isolation zone. The amazing doctors at Hinduja khar and Lilavati armed us with enough information to ensure panic would not set in. We informed the BMC of my status and amped up everyones vitamin intake. Today after being retested for Covid19, I am happy to say that I have tested negative. My family is still following strict home isolation. I was totally asymptomatic and apart from the boredom that accompanies isolation had no other complaints. I am continuing to take this forced time out as an opportunity to introspect and focus on life's smaller pleasures. The days are spent meditating, catching up on ample OTT content and reading books I've long forgotten I'd bought. We all held on to our optimism and if theres one take away I have from this, is that there's nothing to fear but fear itself. Corona felt like a looming, distant and scary phantom that we took every precaution to avoid and even then it found a way to enter what we thought was a completely sanitised space. Yet, here we are, dealing with it and getting on with our lives. Its unfair to test peoples loyalty when your world feels like it's caving in on you. It's such a strange time that a seasonal sneeze or cough feels like something more sinister. As hard as it is for the people isolating, it's tougher still for their caregivers. #kirankumar #coronavirusindia #indiafightscorona #viralbhayani @viralbhayani
