COVID-19: Purab Kohli Reveals That He And His Family Were Tested Positive In London

Shubanka Sridhar , 08 Apr 2020

Yesterday, we told you about producer Karim Morani‘s daughters — Zoa and Zasha Morani — being tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. While they are currently being kept under observation and taking treatments, we got news of actor Purab Kohli and his family contracting the virus.

The ‘Out Of Love‘ actor currently lives in London with his wife Lucy Payton and children Inaya (5) and Osian (1). He took to his Instagram to let his friends and followers know of the kind of symptoms they experienced and how they coped with the coronavirus. He says that Inaya was the first to contract it when she developed a mild cough and cold. After the entire family experienced similar symptoms, their general physician came to the conclusion that they were down with COVID-19. Given the situation in London is quite bad right now, Purab says a lot of people they know have also caught it.

Have a look at his post:

Hey guys, we’ve just had a flu and given our symptoms our GP says we were down with Covid 19. Pretty similar to a regular flu with a stronger cough and a feeling of breathlessness. Inaya got it first and very mild. A cough and a cold for two days. Then Lucy got it more in the chest, quite similar to the cough symptom everyone has been talking about. Then me, i got a solid cold for one day which was horrid then it vanished and this irritating cough set in for 3 days. Three of us had only mild 100-101 temperatures and fatigue. Osian got it last with a 104 fever for 3 nights. Also a runny nose and a slight cough. His fever disappeared only on his 5th day. We were constantly in touch with the GP on the phone. Apparently everyone in London is getting it and its rampant here, and a few people we know have gotten it. Just wanted to share it with you if it helps reduce the panic a little to know someone who has had it and is fine. On Wednesday last week we were out of self imposed quarantine and are not contagious any longer. We were doing 4 to 5 steams and salt water gargles a day, ginger haldi honey mixtures to sooth the throat really helped. Also warm water bottles on the chest really helped relax the chest. Hot baths helped the fluie feelings. And of course lots and lots of rest even now after two weeks we can feel our bodies still recovering. Please stay safe. I hope none of you get it but if you do, know that your body is strong enough to fight it. Seek proper advice from your doctors as intensity of each case is different as was in my household alone. And please stay home and rest the body as much as possible. Lots of love. #CoronaVirus #Covid19 #Recovery #DontPanic #Breathe #Calm

He even mentions that they are trying to build their immunity post the flu, which is the most crucial. I feel updating people about your experiences in these situations are so important because it is useful information to save another life.

We are glad Purab and his family are out of danger and wish them a speedy recovery.
