'Rock On!!' actor Purab Kohli on Tuesday revealed that he and his family had tested positive for the novel coronavirus in London. In a detailed Instagram post, Purab shared his and his entire family's symptoms and said that COVID-19 is "pretty similar to a regular flu with a stronger cough and a feeling of breathlessness."
The Instagram post had a detailed description of all the symptoms that Purab Kohli, his wife Lucy and daughter Inaya suffered. Sharing the news he wrote, "Hey guys, we’ve just had a flu and given our symptoms our GP says we were down with Covid 19."
"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," the 'Airlift' actor added.
He also shared that the outbreak of the novel coronavirus is pretty rampant in London and everyone is getting it there. He further urged fans to not panic and asserted that the body is strong enough to fight it.
Purab also shared a few home remedies that helped him and family feel a little better. He wrote, "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."
He concluded the post by writing, ""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 "
