Shikha had been treating novel coronavirus patients for over six months now.

“Tested Positive #Admitted. Abhi oxygen ki kami mehsoos ho rahi hai. Post unke liye jo kehte hain corona kuch bhi nahin (I feel I am low on oxygen right now.

Shikha urged everyone to take proper precautions, and not to take the disease lightly.

In March, IANS had reported how Shikha had taken up nursing for Covid patients. She had shared that she “is currently working as a volunteer at a hospital in Mumbai to fight against coronavirus”.

Incidentally, Shikha has a degree in nursing from Delhi’s Vardhaman Mahavir Medical College and Safrdarjung Hospital.
