“I am waiting for my next COVID-19 test as I feel there’s a technical error because I’m fit and fine. I am not feeling unwell and I don’t think I have the disease because I don’t have any symptoms. However, it’s my duty to isolate myself and I assure you all that I am fit and fine. I will update you about my health. Don’t worry,” he can be heard saying in the clips.
“Please dont worry, I will keep you updated regarding my health and I have already started getting calls. I don’t know how people got this information so fast. Don’t worry, I will take care of myself. All of you please take care.”
