Life does not change af­ter you have Covid-19

was anx­ious when I didn’t have all the in­for­ma­tion. But I think was psy­cho­log­i­cally at peace once I knew every­thing about it,” he shares.

He goes on to say that the dis­ease “man­i­fests in ev­ery per­son dif­fer­ently”, and this adds to the con­fu­sion. “Carla and I had com­pletely dif­fer­ent symp­toms. I think that’s also why there’s con­fu­sion. In our case, our doc­tor ad­vised home quar­an­tine for me, and when he heard Carla’s symp­toms, he asked us to hos­pi­talise her im­me­di­ately,” says the artiste.

Ka­nungo, how­ever, in­sists that peo­ple should seek proper med­i­cal ad­vice, and steer clear of self-di­ag­no­sis us­ing in­for­ma­tion avail­able on the in­ter­net. “I think more than any­thing else, we should con­tain it and try to be ex­tra care­ful. And if med­i­cally, we have to take any ad­vice, it should only be from doc­tors,” he cau­tions.

While he wasn’t wor­ried much about his health, Ka­nungo, 29, ad­mits he was wor­ried about Den­nis, as she had to be hos­pi­talised. He shares, “I was sh*t scared, to be hon­est, es­pe­cially when she started de­vel­op­ing breath­ing is­sues. I think that’s what hap­pens. You don’t think about your­self any­more, you worry about those you love.”

“My mother as well. She told me she was pray­ing I don’t have Covid-19, de­spite want­ing me to get tested,” he signs off.
