Meanwhile, a coronavirus survivor Venkara Raghava, from Bengaluru who was infected with COVID19 has fully recovered now.
He said,"I am doing perfectly well now. I had travelled to Los Angeles via Heathrow airport, that is when I came in contact with many travellers. I might have picked up the infection there."
Speaking to ANI, Raghava said,''When I landed back in Bengaluru on Mar8, I had fever, I isolated myself. Same day I went to a hospital where my travel history was taken &I was tested positive for COVID19. Next day, I was admitted to the isolation centre. My entire family was tested negative.''
''COVID19 is like regular viral fever, nothing to be scared of. At the isolation centre one has to take care of themselves, unlike at hospital where doctors and nurses take care of the patient,'' he said.
