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.
