The second wave of the Covid 19 pandemic has been wreaking havoc in India, with several people losing their lives and many others either being hospitalised or forced into isolation.
Actress Sunainaa, who has acted in a number of Telugu and Tamil films, is the latest from the film world to announce that she had been infected by the virus.
She took to social media to make the announcement.
Sunainaa said, “Hi Everyone, Despite being extremely careful, I have tested positive for Covid -19. I have isolated myself at home and have followed all protocols.
“I haven’t come in contact with anybody except for the members of my family and they are all in isolation as well.
“As much as I want to completely shut my social (media platforms) and rest, I don’t want to miss out on any opportunity to post, repost, or retweet a post that could give as little or big help to someone in need, so, I will be here as much as I can.
“Please wear a mask, stay home and save lives. I am praying for everyone.
Several actors both in the Tamil and the Telugu film industries, including Suriya, Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde and Andrea Jeremiah, have so far been affected by the virus.
Sunainaa is the latest actress to have been infected by the virus.
