On Sunday, Govinda’s COVID-19 diagnosis was revealed just hours after actor Akshay Kumar tweeted he has contracted the virus as well. In the recent past, celebs such as Alia Bhatt, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Kartik Aaryan, Paresh Rawal, Milind Soman, among others have tested positive for COVID-19. Stars such as Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Malaika Arora, among others, have taken their COVID-19 vaccination.
On Sunday, 93,249 fresh COVID-19 positive cases were reported since yesterday in India, which is the highest single-day rise since mid-September last year. Maharashtra alone is contributing sixty percent of the cases. Maharashtra has shown a nine-fold jump in the last two months – eight of the ten districts with the highest number of coronavirus cases are in Maharashtra.
