Aishwarya Rai Bachchan tests positive for COVID-19.

Abhishek Bachchan tweeted that Aishwarya and Aradhya Bachchan tested positive for COVID-19 and are isolating at their home in Mumbai.

On July 11, Aishwarya and other family members had been tested using rapid antigen kits. For those who tested negative, according to the protocol, their swab samples were taken for RT-PCR tests. Aishwarya and her daughter Aaradhya tested positive for the swab test, but Jaya Bachchan, her daughter Shweta Nanda, and her two children tested negative. The BMC officials confirmed this.

Aishwarya and Aaradhya are asymptomatic and opted for home quarantine. While Amitabh and Abhishek, both having mild symptoms, have been admitted to the Nanavati hospital. Dr. Abdul Samad Ansari, director of the critical care unit of Nanavati Hospital, treating the actors, said they are being given symptomatic medication.

Amitabh Bachchan requested all those who have been in proximity to him in the last ten days, to get themselves tested for COVID-19.

ANI report citing Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) revealed that 30 people working at the bungalows had been tested for coronavirus, and their results are awaited. Bachchan's four bungalows - Jalsa, Janak, Pratiksha, and Vatsa – have been sealed and declared as containment zones after proper sanitization. All residents in these bungalows have been placed under a 14-day quarantine.
