People are talking about Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan testing positive for Covid-19 and being hospitalized. They are wondering that how could such high profile celebrities who do not come into contact with outsiders and whose every nook and corner must be sanitized twice daily get infected. People are saying that if the coronavirus can infect a person like Amitabh no amount of precaution can be enough to prevent it from infecting the common man who has to take so many risks on a daily basis.
But people are also appreciative of the fact that despite having mild symptoms, the great thespian took no risk and got admitted to a hospital. Bachchan has several comorbidities - related diseases - and has survived several infections. Plus he is over 65 years of age and is vulnerable to infections, especially coronavirus. Hence people are applauding his decision of not staying in home quarantine. People say he has set an example for others.
People are also happy that Big B is stable and recovering. They point out that it is a measure of the love and respect he commands in the film industry that Twitter is full of get-well-soon messages from the film fraternity, among others. People from all walks of life are praying for him and wish him speedy recovery and long life.
