"Hello all…Am so overwhelmed by all the love that’s being poured in…thank you for keeping me in your prayers :) Sorry I haven’t had a chance to reply back to your message’s, calls or dm’s. I’ve spent yesterday sleeping and recovering. Just want to say, stay home and step out if it’s really necessary. Follow protocol. Trust me this is a lot harder than you can," she wrote.

I am following the protocol given by my doctor and health professionals." She urged, "If you have been in contact with me, request you to please get tested immediately." She also advised her followers to not 'take the current situation situation lightly' since she contracted the virus despite taking 'utmost precautions'.
"Wear a mask, keep washing your hands, maintain social distancing and be mindful of your general behaviour," she concluded.
