New Delhi: Actor Kartik Aaryan has been earning praises for his efforts to spread awareness about the deadly coronavirus since its outbreak in India and on Saturday, he once again won the internet for his one-of-a-kind gesture. Kartik has started a series of his own titled ‘Koki Poochega’, in which he will interact with the COVID-19 survivors and warriors. The first guest of his show was Sumiti Singh, one of India’s first coronavirus survivors from Gujarat.
During the interaction, Sumiti revealed that she had returned to India after visiting the Northern Lights, but then the outbreak had barely begun in India. She was taking all the precautionary measures, was under self-isolation for 14 days and still, she got infected. Fews days later, she developed a fever and was tested positive for the virus. Sumiti went on to elaborate that she drove herself to the hospital as she didn’t want any member of her family to come in contact with her. She’s glad that none of her family members got infected. Days later, when she returned home after treatment, she was given a heroic welcome in the society.
