LUCKNOW (UTTAR PRADESH): Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, where Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor is being treated for COVID-19, on Friday said that she has tested positive in her third test as well.

She had tested positive for novel coronavirus for the second time on March 23, following her first positive test on March 20. The "Baby Doll" fame singer had also deleted her Instagram post through which she had revealed that she had contracted the virus.

It is believed that she deleted the post after facing severe online backlash in the wake of the announcement. Ever since her diagnosis, the singer received flak, mostly because of the perceived lack of caution she took after returning from the UK.

Earlier, Lucknow police booked Kanika on charges of negligence for attending various social events in the city despite being infected with coronavirus and having been instructed by the authorities to isolate herself at her home.

She has been booked under Sections 188, 269, and 270 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at Sarojini Nagar police station in the city. The FIR was lodged based on a complaint filed by the chief medical officer (CMO) of Lucknow.

The total number of people who have tested positive for the coronavirus in the country crossed 800 on Friday, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
