The mother of two informed that since the past week Hans had “high fevers, headaches, body ache, upset tummy and severe fatigue. It lasted for four days.” Saying that these “unusual” symptoms had them worried so “we tested him and he was COVID positive.”
Sameera Reddy COVID-19 positive, says that when her kids also got the virus, she did feel “complete panic” initially because “however much you think you are prepared, you just never completely are for something like this.”
Further talking about Nyra’s health she stated her two-year-old also started showing symptoms and had fevers and upset tummy. She gave her cold compress and paracetamol on SoS, the actor, who is popular on Instagram as Messy Mama, shared. Sharing what measures she is taking for a quick recovery, Reddy wrote that the most important thing is to be aware that the second wave is affecting more children and according to doctors it can present mild symptoms in most cases. She said her doctors recommended vitamin C, multivitamin, a probiotic and zinc but it’s upto the parents and family to make them comfortable. “Both are in great spirits and back to being in masti mode,” she stated about her kids. She again reminded parents that it is important to remember that even though your kids might largely remain asymptomatic in a few days it is necessary to have them isolated from people who haven’t been affected for 14 days to make sure it is not transmitted.
Earlier, the Race actor had shared her struggle with postpartum depression. She had revealed that she was “a mess” after the birth of her son Hans in 2015. Before giving birth to her second child, she had opened up about postpartum depression, alopecia and more.
