Erica Fernandes and her mom test positive for COVID-19

‘Kuch Rang Pyaar Key Aise Bhi’ and ‘Kasauti Zindagi ki 2’ actress Erica Fernandes and her mother have tested COVID positive. The two are under home quarantine and Erica has also requested everyone not to trust home kits and get a lab test as she got three false negatives in her home test.

She took the news to her Instagram account to inform her fans about the situation. She wrote, “Unfortunately, as of now me along with my mom have tested positive. One note of advice DO NOT rely on the home test (coviself kit ) because they are not reliable at all On the 2nd of January when I developed cough n sore throat, I got myself tested on the coviself kit knowing that I have had a history of laryngitis and the cough n sore throat could be from that and further on for confirmation I went on to take 2 more tests the following day. All 3 tests showed negative, along with me my mom’s test on coviself also showed negative but I dint feel too good because this time the sore throat was so bad that I felt like I had a sandpaper in my throat”.

She asked everyone who came in contact with them to get tested. Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor, Sonu Nigan, Anshula Kapoor have also tested positive for Covid-19.
