Hello guys. This isn't easy or joyful to write. As the world fights against a public health scare, we must do our best to ensure we stay safe and calm in every little way so our friends, families, colleagues don't panic. Ensure you're constantly following the WHO recommended safety and hygiene steps and staying indoors as much as possible. It's the time to come together in spirit and do our bit to avoid the infection, ask our loved ones to keep calm and most importantly, each one of us needs to be reponsible for ourselves, first. It's all these little steps that's going to be the change. Stay safe, stay healthy. Love, Malaika

Speaking about the day when she was tested COVID-19 positive, Malaika shared, "Luckily, my family had not contracted the virus. I was shocked when I tested positive because I had not shown any major symptoms or experienced discomfort. I was advised to self-quarantine at home. I made sure that I didn't step out of my room, and didn't come in contact with anyone, including my son, the house staff and our dog Casper."
Malaika further added that she did not have breathlessness, but showed some mild symptoms.
"I complained of weakness, which tends to happen when your body is fighting a disease. While I couldn't practice my yoga routine as I was weak, I made sure I performed the basic asanas, and practiced breathing exercises like anulom vilom and kapalbhati," shared Malaika.
Malaika also gave a few tips to her fans about fitness and said, "My advice to everyone is to exercise regularly, and consume healthy food and immunity drinks. You may or may not be able to escape the virus, but your immunity decides how much pain you will go through."
