There is a notice of ‘COVID-19 Do Not Visit’ outside actress Divyanka Tripathi’s Bhopal home. In fact, his brother Aishwarya Tripathi is a pilot on IndiGo flights and returned to Bhopal a few days ago after flying several international flights. In such a situation, he has been asked to stay in Home Quarantine. However, Divyanka believes her brother has been advised to stay in Quarantine as a precaution. They are not infected with coronaviruses.
Divyanka told an English website, “My brother’s last flight was 13 days ago. He has no symptoms of coronavirus. Besides, he is getting himself screened every day by authorized government doctors. Recently on international flights All aviation crew members have placed themselves in self-quarantine. But that does not mean that they are all infected with coronaviruses. This is just a defense. The mean. ”
Divyanka has also given clarification on social media. She writes, “My brother is a pilot, who is voluntarily quarantine and has not had any symptoms in him since day 13. If he was infected, he would treat himself like other responsible staff. Recently officials Labeled outside our Bhopal home, which is very important. But they forgot to mention that my brother is not COVID positive. ”

#CoronaShaming is most dastardly act one can indulge into. Keep distance, be careful but don't lose empathy that primarily defines us as humans. My brother is a pilot, willingly self quarantined at home, while SHOWING NO SYMPTOMS for 13 days. Even if he would have been affected he would have got himself treated like any other dutiful staff. Until recently, when officials posted a label outside our Bhopal house which is important but it 'failed to mention that he's NOT COVID POSITIVE', I didn't know what trauma airline staff was going through. Several being made to leave their houses, many are being ill treated, their families are being stigmatised…just because THEY CHOSE TO SERVE YOU OVER THEIR LIFE! My father risks his life everyday to provide others medicines from his pharmacy. My brother dared to keep flying till last government directive so that several stranded passengers can return home. It's a risk so many brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers are taking every day providing us essential services, while their families can only pray for their well being. We conveniently traveled and we are still shopping for our medicines, grocery etc but when it comes to addressing these selfless workers, some of us choose to ostracise them! Least we can do is be respectful as neighbors and fellow citizens, let them live with dignity, if not thank them personally. #AviationCrewDeservesRespect #BeingQuarantinedIsNotBeingPositive #StopCoronaShaming #NotAllQuarantinedArePositive
Divyanka further stated in her post, “I didn’t even know what harassment the airline staff was going through before it was labeled. Many people are being pressured to leave their homes. Many He is being treated and his family is being called good and bad. Only because he chose to serve you more than his life. “
