International Business Times got in touch with Zoa to get her health update. The actress exclusively spoke to us saying she is doing well and doctors have given her required medicines for her recovery.
Excerpts from the interview:
What are the medicines that she is taking?
My treatment is going on very well. I am feeling much better. I am taking HCQ, paracetamol and antibiotics will hopefully get me out of here very soon.
What is she doing when not resting?
My daily routine in the hospital begins at 6 am. I wake up, freshen up and do Pranayam. I also do a few exercises suggested by my doctor. The workout is followed by chai, the tea here is very good. Then, I get on the phone with my family and we check on each other's health. Apart from binge-watching movies, web shows. what keeps me going is my exercise. Watching the doctors walking around in their spacesuits (the protective gear) makes me wonder... Am I on the moon? I must say, this is quite an experience, and I think I was meant to go through this.
Shaza's reports came negative and will be discharged soon. Zoa will be hosting a live interactive session with Varun Dhawan today at 5.30 pm.
Announcing the same she wrote on her Instagram.
For the unversed, here is the travel history of Karim Morani's daughters.

It feels like a flu with a bit of uneasiness in the chest.. very bearable if one rests it out, pranayam and hot water have been helping a-lot!
