Both Rampal and Mukesh took to their respective social media pages to inform fans about their diagnosis. Sharing a note late Friday, 48-year-old Rampal said though he was “asymptomatic”, he was getting the necessary medical care. “I am following all protocols as is required of me. To all those who have been in contact with me in the past 10 days, please take care and take the necessary precautions. “This is a very scary time for us but if we are aware and wise for a short span of time, it will yield long term benefits. Together, we can and we will fight Corona,” Rampal wrote.
Mukesh, 39, said he and members of his family had tested positive for COVID-19 despite taking “necessary precautions”. “We are all home quarantined, following the essential protocols and taking medication as prescribed by our doctors. “We thank all of you for your love and good wishes! Take care and stay safe,” the actor wrote.
