The dust doesnât seem to be settling around the storm brewed by Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor ever since she tested positive for COVID-19. The Baby Doll singer has since, been receiving a ton of backlash for being ânegligentâ and threatening the safety of people. 

However, in a new turn of events, Kanika Kapoor has decided to speak out against all the hate that is coming her way since her diagnosis yesterday. 

Speaking to TOI Kanika said, "I want to tell people that I'm not the irresponsible person I'm being made to look like."

Kanikais currently being kept in isolation at the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) in Lucknow, and she spoke at length about how none of this is her fault, to begin with. 

Instead, she believes the casual behaviour of the state health authorities should be questioned for her delayed diagnosis and quarantine. 

During the interview, Kanika shared that she was fully screened at the Mumbai airport upon her arrival in India on 9th March, and when no red flags were put out, she decided to come and stay with her parents in Lucknow.  

She even says that no government advisory for foreign-returned individuals had been issued at the time, and since she hadnât developed any symptoms and didnât know she had contracted the virus, she did attend a few parties.

Talking about the same, Kanika said that she never hosted a party but went to a small birthday bash which was attended by several politicians including Dushyant Singh. However, peopleâs nasty comments and weird allegations have been upsetting her thoroughly even when she claims she isnât the one to be blamed.

In her defence, Kanika said, âWhen I called the helpline numbers, after hearing out my symptoms, they said it doesn't seem like the Coronavirus, and it might just be the seasonal flu. But I kept insisting, and it was only after I pestered them that the CMO sent people to take my samples. I was the one who pestered the authorities, who I felt were taking things lightly. It took them three days to send someone to collect my sample and test it. From Monday till then, I had confined myself to my room. The moment I felt sick, I called up the authorities. So, tell me, whoâs been lax?"

She has even spoken out against the medical staff at SGPGIMS, claiming that not only is she being mistreated and threatened by the doctors for allegedly âwithholding informationâ, she is also being kept in a dirty room with flies-ridden food being served to her. She said, âI am being ill-treated here and it feels like Iâm in jail. They are behaving as if I am a criminal for no fault of mine.â

Now we didnât see that coming. What are your thoughts on this?
