Likewise, Nora Fatehi's spokesperson also issued a statement and said the actress had tested Covid positive two days ago, with officials from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) also extending their cooperation. The spokesperson further added that a few photos of the actress in outdoor locations that are now doing the rounds on social media are old and that she has not stepped out since she began her Covid-19 diagnosis. "The spotting pictures in circulation since yesterday are from an earlier event in the past and Nora has stepped nowhere out recently. We would therefore request to please ignore the old pictures," news agency PTI reported.
