Actor Dilip Kumar quarantines self as precautionary measure against coronavirus
Dilip Kumar, 97, took to Twitter to reveal that he's in quarantine and in complete isolation. While the veteran actor hasn't contracted the novel coronavirus, he revealed that wife Saira Banu isn't taking chances, and has therefore decided to quarantine him as a precautionary measure. "I am under complete isolation and quarantine due to the #CoronavirusOutbreak. Saira has left nothing to chance, ensuring I do not catch any infection," Dilip Kumar tweeted.
He also urged his fans to stay home as far as possible and follow the guidelines issued by health departments to ensure their safety. "I appeal to all of you to protect yourself and others by staying indoors as much as possible. The #CoronavirusOutbreak transcends all boundaries and borders. Follow guidelines issued by health departments, protect yourself and others by limiting your exposure to others," Dilip Kumar added in a second tweet.
