I got my reports yesterday and the first thing I did was stop shooting. I don’t want to be a carrier. Last night I cried a lot while going home and even until early in the morning. I couldn’t sleep. My mom is still crying. My phone was busy; I was talking to a lot of people. My WhatsApp was flooded with messages about the symptoms, treatment and much more. It was chaotic. I was even feeling guilty that I put my co-stars and crew in trouble, too. I was taking all the safety precautions but still, I contracted the virus.

She also added that she was instructed by the Doctors to have a lot of Vitamin C and Zinc content in her diet. However, Navya sounded very confident about recovering from Corona very soon. She requested all other people who have been tested positive for the virus to stay strong mentally and eat healthy food. Currently, Navya doesn’t have any symptoms associated with Coronavirus and it looks like she is slowly getting recovered. We wish Navya a speedy recovery!
