She told Zee News, "I came back to Lucknow from London on March 9, 2020". However, rumours suggest that Kanika was not too careful and instead threw a party for 100 people in Lucknow.

Not only did Kanika hide important information about her traveling, but she also put others at risk by staying at a five-star hotel in the Uttar Pradesh capital.

"My family and I are in complete quarantine and following medical advice on the way forward", said the singer. "Contact mapping of ppl I've been in touch with is underway".

"At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs".

However, she reassured the fans that she was feeling fine and it felt like just the normal fever and flu.

"We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives", she further added. "I request all people in country to get out of house only when it is extremely necessary, try and do all work from home", he said. "And all the news about me throwing a bash is fale and baseless".

Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has infected over 209,000 globally, including Hollywood stars Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson, and actor Idris Elba. A few days back they were released from the hospital. The coronavirus was first detected at a seafood market in China's Wuhan and it quickly spread from there, infecting over 245,700 people worldwide and claiming over 10,000 lives.

The singer later on Friday took to Instagram to confirm that she had indeed tested positive for coronavirus and along with her family have been quarantined.

Due to the virus, several B-Town celebrities have cancelled their shoots and are not heading out to avoid getting infected from COVID-19.
