அமெரிக்கப் பயணம் முடிந்து திரும்பிய பின் லேசான இருமல் இருந்தது. பரிசோதனை செய்ததில் கோவிட் தொற்று உறுதியானது. மருத்துவமனையில் தனிமைப்படுத்திக் கொண்டுள்ளேன். இன்னமும் நோய்ப்பரவல் நீங்கவில்லையென்பதை உணர்ந்து அனைவரும் பாதுகாப்பாக இருங்கள்.

Later, in a statement, the Sri Ramachandra Medical Centre, where Kamal has been admitted, said, “Sri Kamal Haasan is admitted in SRMC for complaints of lower respiratory tract infection and fever. He was tested Covid positive. He is on medical management and his condition is stable.”
The actor had gone to the US to attend an event and promote Indian Khadi to western nations. It is on his return that he tested Covid positive.
