Aug 03 2020
Amitabh Bachchan has tested negative on his latest COVID-19 test, revealed his son Abhishek on Sunday, 2 August. He also said that he was humbled and indebted by the love and support of all the people. He also appeared optimistic about his recovery from the disease soon and said that he would beat the infection and come back healthier.
Junior Bachchan while announcing that his father, Amitabh, has tested negative and been discharged from the hospital said, "I, unfortunately, due to some comorbidities remain COVID-19 positive and remain in hospital".
Senior Bachchan was last seen in Shoojit Sarkar's comedy drama Gulabo Sitabo that opted for a direct-to-digital release on Amazon Prime Video due to the covid-19 pandemic. The entire Bachchan clan, including veteran actor Jaya Bachchan, actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her eight-year-old daughter Aaradhya, underwent swab test for COVID-19. I am back home in solitary quarantine.
But he told fans on Sunday: "I have tested COVID negative, have been discharged. Promise", Abhishek wrote on Twitter. While Amitabh Bachchan was receiving treatment in the isolation ward, Abhishek Bachchan was being treated in the general ward of the hospital. He also headed out for a late-night walk recently in the hospital while ensuring proper safety precautions.
Bachchan was one of the most high-profile figures to test positive in India. However, over the weekend, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) removed the poster that declared it as a COVID-19 containment zone.
