The tennis star has now recovered and warns people that the virus is no Joke! Writing an open letter to fans Sania opened up about her COVID-19 experience.

Sania Mirza in her Instagram post wrote, “Just a bit of info as to what’s been going on since the year began. I had contracted covid 19 – I am healthy and absolutely fine now by the grace of the almighty but I just wanted to share my experience.”

I was lucky to not have any major symptoms for the most part of it, but I was in isolation and the toughest part was to stay away from my 2-year-old and family. I can’t even imagine what ppl and their families are going through when ppl are sick in the hospital all alone and by themselves..it was scary as you aren’t very sure what to expect and hear so many different things and stories..you get a new symptom every day and the uncertainty of it is extremely hard to deal with not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well,” she continued.

“I just want to say after having been through it, I was fortunate to be more or less ok throughout it all, but to be away from my family was one of the scariest things – to not know when I’ll see them again. this virus is no joke, I took all the precautions as I could but still contracted it. We must do everything we can to protect our friends and family,” Sania Mirza added.

She concluded by requesting people, “Wear your masks, wash your hands and protect yourself and your loved ones..we are in this fight together.”

Earlier in November 2020, Sania Mirza celebrated her birthday in the full spirit in Pakistan. During her visit to Karachi, Shaista Lodhi has hosted a surprise birthday with her husband Shoaib Malik.
