13 Jul – Over the weekend, news broke that Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek both tested positive for COVID-19.
Now the latest update from Abhishek himself reveals that wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, along with their daughter Aaradhya, also tested positive.
However, both Aishwarya Rai and Aaradhya are asymptomatic and have been allowed to return home for isolation.
A rep from Nanavati Hospital, where the father-and-son duo have been admitted since Saturday after showing mild symptoms, told The Indian Express that both the actors were stable and Abhishek might even be discharged soon, allowing him to undergo home isolation with his wife and daughter.
News about the Bachchan family testing positive for COVID-19 was revealed by Amitabh himself last weekend, when he tweeted on Saturday asking everyone who has been in contact with him in the past 10 days to get themselves tested.
Abhishek also posted on Twitter later after his father's update, saying that apart from Aishwarya and Aaradhya, the rest of the family – including his mother Jaya – tested negative.
It is reported that all four of the Bachchan family's bungalows, Jalsa, Janak, Pratiksha and Vatsa, have been sanitised and sealed by the BMC yesterday. A BMC official also stated that the staff will be quarantined for 14 days at Jalsa.
