Singer Kanika Kapoor, who has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, is being slammed by everyone for not going into self-quarantine after returning to India from London a few days ago. Check out some of the angry reactions on Social Media…
“Kanika Kapoor’s episode just shows that stardom and money and privilege doesn’t guarantee minimum common sense. Their irresponsible behaviour can upset the fight against #coronavirus which till date has been reasonably contained in India,” a user tweeted.

Lot of people even asked police to arrest the “Baby Doll” singer.
Let me say this aloud – #KanikaKapoor needs to be arrested and given some punishment. Any person knowingly putting life of others in danger needs to be stringently dealt with as we battle #CoronavirusOutbreakindia— Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj (@DeepikaBhardwaj) March 20, 2020
This woman should be charged with criminal negligence. Period.
I appeal to Shri @myogiadityanath ji to arrest #KanikaKapoor upon her recovery and initiate stringent legal action u/s 3 of Epidemic Act, 1897. Unless a strong example is set, this bio-terrorism will destroy our fight against #coronavirus https://t.co/WncFIrHfsn— Tuhin A. Sinha (@tuhins) March 20, 2020
On Friday morning, Kanika had taken to Instagram to announce that she has been infected with the virus.
“Hello everyone, For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell.
“I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10 days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs.
I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives,” Kanika wrote.
