Covid Oh Covid stars down with Covid-19
TALK about irony. Two stars of the TV3 drama Covid Oh Covid are infected with Covid-19. Nora Danish and Tiz Zaqyah have confirmed through their social media accounts that they are down with coronavirus.
Though she has contracted the virus, 39-year-old Nora said she has not shown any symptoms.
“I went to get tested because I am identified as a Category C close contact. The result shows that I am positive but I do not have any symptoms,” Nora said on Instagram on May 9.
“I am now quarantined in the room so that my children and husband are safe. They had undergone the PCR test at noon so please pray for us.”
Nora also stated that those who came in contact with her between May 4 and 8 should get themselves tested.
Her co-star Tiz also updated her fans on Instagram on May 9 with this message: “I received a call from Subang Jaya Medical Center informing me that I have tested positive for Covid. Adviced to quarantine at home for now. Pray for me and family.”
Tiz said that she showed symptoms such as coughs and shivers, and when she sensed her body wasn’t acting the same, she decided to get herself tested.
The 33-year-old actress advised her fans: “PLEASE get yourself tested if you have fever, flu, sneezing, coughing, headaches. Don’t be too certain because some may not show any symptoms at all. JUST GO GET YOURSELF TESTED before the worst happens.”
She also emphasised: “STAY HOME. It’s everywhere. No joke.”
