BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Actor Zoa Morani, the elder daughter of Chennai Express producer Karim Morani, is back at her house after being released from the hospital post testing negative for coronavirus. Her sister Shaza was also released but Karim is yet to recover fully.
Speaking to Hindustan Times about the experience, Zoa said, “I had mild fever, and then it worsened over a week, with dry cough, headache and fatigue. It was as if my immunity had taken a hit. When it started, the first thing I did was isolate myself from my parents as I live with them. I also started drinking immunity building drinks like kaada, haldi and tulsi paani, basically lots of fluids.”
Even though she felt scared to be alone, the staff was extremely helpful. “I was alone in the hospital then, but my doctor was kind, sensitive and gave me a lot of positivity. I kept telling myself ‘there are others out there with severe symptoms, fighting it out, so I must be grateful that I am in a manageable situation.’ Being in that isolation ICU was some experience,” she said, reports the publication.
She also did yoga to boost her immunity. “I’ve been an avid Ashtanga yoga practitioner since six years, which teaches us how to handle the mind, body and lungs. Pranayam and Surya Namaskar were my true companions even through the symptoms,” she said.
