The recent surge in COVID 19 cases in India and around the world has definitely left everyone concerned. Earlier, last week, Nakuul Mehta and Jankee Parekh had opened upon their Baby Sufi contracting COVID 19 and how they battled that. Now, Addite Malik and Mohit Malik have come forward and opened up on their son Ekbir testing COVID 19 positive last week. They have assured that he is doing fine and has recovered now but the ordeal had definitely left them on edge.
In an Instagram post, Additie opened up on ‘motherhood diaries’ and shared, “Motherhood Diaries, When Your NewBorn Tests Positive For Covid, Chapter 18. Battles happen from the moment a baby is inside a mother’s womb and yes children are stronger than we can ever imagine! My little Ekbir who has never had a fever till date, woke up one morning slightly warm. We checked his temperature and it was 102 degrees. The first thought that came to our mind was to test everyone and unfortunately Ekbir and one of my househelps tested positive. Initially, I was shocked.”
She shared that both Mohit and she decided that they will keep the atmosphere of the house happy despite all the difficulties. “I was wondering how did this happen but then Mohit and I decided that we had to look at it positively. Ekbir would fight it out and so would all of us as a family with increased immunity. Ironically Mohit had Covid last year in January when I was 7 months pregnant and around the same time Ekbir too got it in the same week, same time. Children catch on to their parents’ anxiety and nervousness quickly. It took us 2 to 3 hours but we decided that the house had to be playful for Ekbir and touchwood by God’s Grace he is out of it. We were all isolated in separate rooms and we all finished our quarantine were tested and are negative.”
Opening on their learnings, Addite asserted, “For me the learning was that yes Covid is dangerous and yes I was nervous but when it came down to it, we all fighters, including our children. Stay safe, take all the precautions but if you still end up letting Covid enter your home, remember not to give up! Fight it out and win the battle…”
