Banita Sandhu tests positive for new strain of Covid-19?

British actress Banita Sandhu, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Varun Dhawan in the movie October, has tested positive for Covid-19. Reportedly, she was admitted to a private hospital on Monday after she refused to be treated in a government facility, health department sources said. Sandhu, who was shooting for Kavita & Teresa, had recently travelled in the same flight with the youth who tested positive for the mutant coronavirus strain on his return from the United Kingdom.

The actress was diagnosed with Covid-19 on Monday afternoon and steps were initiated to ascertain whether she has been infected with the new strain, an official said. After Banita Sandhu was taken to the Beliaghata Infectious Diseases Hospital where a separate unit has been set up to keep those returned from the UK, she refused to come out of the ambulance alleging that the hospital lacked proper infrastructure. “Eventually, with the permission of the health department, she was admitted to a private hospital,” the official said, adding that Sandhu has been kept in an isolated cabin there.
