Actor-politician Nagma on Wednesday said she has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently under home quarantine. The 50-year-old actor took to Twitter and wrote that she contracted the virus despite receiving the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on April 2, which is not an indictment on the vaccine since one dose doesn't guarantee efficacy. The Congress leader asked her fans to be cautious, even if they have been vaccinated.
She took to Twitter and wrote, "Had taken my first dose of vaccine a few days ago. Tested for Covid-19, my test has come positive so quarantined myself at home. All please take care and take necessary precautions. Even after taking the first dose of the vaccine do not get complacent in any way manner. Stay safe." As soon as her tweet was up, Soni Razdan wrote, "Nagma please take care and take one more test. If you don’t have symptoms it could be a false positive. If you do have symptoms hope they’re mild." Many wished her a speedy recovery.
