Actor Rahul Roy has tested Covid positive. He took to his Instagram handle to share the news. He is currently quarantined at home. Sharing his Covid story, Rahul wrote that his resident floor was sealed on March 27 as one of his neighbours had tested positive for Coronavirus. So, as a precautionary measure, their floor was also sealed for 14 days. He and his family had to go to Delhi on April 11 and they did RT-PCR tests from Metropolis Lab on April 7 and they got the results on April 10 where his sister Priyanka Roy, brother-in-law Romeer Sen and himself tested positive. Rahul said that they had no symptoms of Covid.

“We came to know that the same day BMC officials were doing testing for the whole society so we again did the Antigen test and we all were negative, and moments later again gave samples for RTPCR which went to Suburban Lab but the test report has still not been given to me,” said Rahul.

When the BMC officials suggested Rahul to get hospitalised, he replied that he has no symptoms and they suggested to make a chart of oxygen level and take medicines.

He added, “I know covid is there but how did I and my family contract this virus without leaving the house, without meeting people or even without going for walks is a question I will never be answered to? My sister @priyankaroy_pia is a yogini and a breathing expert who practices ancient breathing techniques and did not leave the house since 3 months, and without any symptoms has been shown positive in the reports. For now waiting for second 14 days quarantine to get over and redo my tests.”

He also urged everyone to wear masks, wash hands and stay clean.
