It was on Tuesday when actor Purab Kohli gave out the shared heartbreaking news of testing Coronavirus positive. Not only he, but his wife Lucy and daughter Inaya and son Osian had contracted COVID-19. Fortunately, the actor informed that he and his family have been recovered. Purab is currently staying with his family in London.

The actor took to his Instagram account to share his experience. Sharing an update about his health, Purab Kohli posted a lengthy note and thanked his fans for sending warm wishes. The Rock On 2 actor also gave a shout out to all the frontline workers and health workers who are leading the fight against the pandemic. The actor accompanied the post with a throwback photograph of his family of four from their vacation in Coonoor, Tamil Nadu.

He shared a heartfelt letter on his Instagram which read, "Thank you, all you lovely people for your warm wishes. We really let a strong bolt of love come our way. Rest assured, we are very well and fully recovered now."

"Please remember, it is important to stay indoors now. Yes, it's hard! But firstly, we need to put the brakes on this pandemic and then we have to conserve energy and rest our bodies and build strength. God forbid if you do catch the virus, your body which is the real weapon against this virus, will need loads of energy to fight it," he added.

Applauding the health care workers, Purab wrote, "A big shout out to all the frontline workers and health workers around the world who are risking their own health and the health of families to serve us all. Bless them. Take care and lots of love from Lucy, Inaya, Osian and me."

He concluded the letter by sharing a family picture which he had clicked while shooting Out Of Love in Coonoor last year. "This is a photo of us in Coonoor last year while I was filming Out Of Love. Also a reminder to me of the good times to come once we beat this problem as #OneWorld #FightAgainstCorona (sic)."

Hey guys, we’ve just had a flu and given our symptoms our GP says we were down with Covid 19. Pretty similar to a regular flu with a stronger cough and a feeling of breathlessness. Inaya got it first and very mild. A cough and a cold for two days. Then Lucy got it more in the chest, quite similar to the cough symptom everyone has been talking about. Then me, i got a solid cold for one day which was horrid then it vanished and this irritating cough set in for 3 days. Three of us had only mild 100-101 temperatures and fatigue. Osian got it last with a 104 fever for 3 nights. Also a runny nose and a slight cough. His fever disappeared only on his 5th day. We were constantly in touch with the GP on the phone. Apparently everyone in London is getting it and its rampant here, and a few people we know have gotten it. Just wanted to share it with you if it helps reduce the panic a little to know someone who has had it and is fine. On Wednesday last week we were out of self imposed quarantine and are not contagious any longer. We were doing 4 to 5 steams and salt water gargles a day, ginger haldi honey mixtures to sooth the throat really helped. Also warm water bottles on the chest really helped relax the chest. Hot baths helped the fluie feelings. And of course lots and lots of rest even now after two weeks we can feel our bodies still recovering. Please stay safe. I hope none of you get it but if you do, know that your body is strong enough to fight it. Seek proper advice from your doctors as intensity of each case is different as was in my household alone. And please stay home and rest the body as much as possible. Lots of love. #CoronaVirus #Covid19 #Recovery #DontPanic #Breathe #Calm
