The normal order of the entire world took a drastic turn downwards after the COVID-19 outbreak late last year, with the infection's wings continuing to spread rapidly around the world. With a cure yet to be found for the disease, the novel coronavirus has so far gone on to claim more than 1 million lives worldwide, leaving over 33 million testing positive. With governments across the globe and the World Health Organization (WHO) issuing protocols to be followed in order to prevent themselves from getting affected by the novel coronavirus, several measures are also being adopted by health officials and medical workers to identify the disease in persons. Among them is the COVID-19 swab test, which has been producing lucrative results since the beginning of the pandemic. 

Likewise, popular South Indian actress Payal Rajput had recently undergone a COVID-19 swab test, with a video of the procedure subsequently being posted by her on her Instagram page. The actress had resumed shooting after a six-month hiatus due to the pandemic, which had shut down film production across the country. All film productions have been instructed by the government to properly get all members of the cast and crew of their ventures to be properly tested before resuming shooting. In the video, Payal is seen crying and screaming in fear during the COVID-19 test, with the dread of it clearly visible upon her getting done with the process. 

Payal Rajput has gone on to garner a huge fan following over the years in South India and is set to be seen in Tamil next in the Udhayanidhi Stalin starrer, Angel, under KS Adhiyaman's direction. She had resumed shooting for an upcoming venture on Friday at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad with all the COVID-19 guidelines in place. She captioned her video on Instagram as follows: "Aaaouchh 🤪🤪🤪 Back to work 🎬With all precautionary measures 👍 I was really scared of getting it done.The swab rotation for about 5 seconds inside the nose was horrifyingly uncomfortable but I’m glad I did it & tested negative ✅ “Do gaz ki doori hai zaruri" #staypositive #coronatesting #healthoptimisation #spreadlove".
