Waking up to the news of 627 deaths in Italy which has recorded its highest daily rise in the number of deaths of people infected with COVID-19 is a stark reminder of how serious the situation is. However, back in our country, literate people like Kanika Kapoor are letting the whole country down. In fact, she has done a horrendous crime of putting all the people she met after her trip from London in danger.
Despite the government issuing an advisory to self-quarantine yourself after your trip from abroad, it seems to be difficult to understand for people. Yesterday, the news broke in that Kanika Kapoor has been tested positive and now, control mapping of the people she met is underway.View this post on InstagramHello everyone, For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs. I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives. Wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind ! Take care, KKA post shared by (@kanik4kapoor)
The singer has now been booked for her negligence and an utter nonsensical move. An FIR has been registered against her at Sarojini Nagar police station, said Police Commissioner Surjit Pandey. âAn FIR was lodged at the Sarojini Nagar police station under IPC Sections 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life), 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant)," he told news agency PTI.
Kanika Kapoor, on a telephonic interview with AajTak, told that she wasn't aware of the guidelines of staying in isolation of 14 days. She said no one told or advised her to be quarantined. In the interview, she also told that she had attended small family get-togethers and since the last seven days, she hadn't been meeting anyone. In fact, her father also talked to the leading Television news channel and said that she did attend four to five Holi parties. He also added that she was completely fine and it was only in the last two days that her health started deteriorating. Hereâs the video of her and her father's interview:
According to the reports, not only did she attended Congress leader Jitin Prasadaâs dinner party, but she also had a Holi party in Lucknow on March 10, just a day after her return from London.
Hereâs the video and the pictures from the parties she attended:View this post on Instagram

Since yesterday, people on social media have been venting their frustration on the singer's irresponsible behaviour. And now, they have started attacking her with memes and itâs all over the internet. One of them even compared her to Thanos as he had the power to kill almost half of the world with a snap of his finger.

Seems like this irresponsible act by Kanika Kapoor wonât be forgiven or forgotten soon. Needless to say, MensXP too urges you to stay indoors and not think of this self- quarantine period as a time to party with others. Do understand the dire consequences of this pandemic and act responsibly. Who knows when will be the next time you get to save the world just by staying indoors.
