Sania Mirza has revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 in the beginning of the year.

In a note posted to social media, the tennis champion said that though she is fine and healthy now, she wanted to share her 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,” Sania said, adding that she “can’t even imagine what people and their families are going through when people are sick in [the] hospital all alone and by themselves.”
