“The fact that you have contracted Covid-19 isn’t an easy thing to deal with. I was anxious and scared too, initially. Since I was alone, the first few days were all the more difficult. I was following instructions given by doctors but somewhere I was worried given how the virus has taken many lives and the kind of damage it has done to others,” he admits.
The 63- year-old offers that however he had mellow manifestations, he was advised to be cautious or the issue could exasperate.
“There was no fever, body ache or breathing trouble. I was doing fine till I lost my sense of smell first and then sense of taste. Doctor asked me to get a chest CT scan done. The result showed infection in the lung and pneumonia tendencies. I was given medicines, put on a high protein and vitamin diet,” he reviews.
The artist had ventured out to record a couple of tunes, and obliged for a couple photographs with fans outside one of the studios. “But then those photos were clicked from a distance. The thing about this virus is you can’t say where you can get it from,” he notes.

“My family was constantly in touch with me via calls and video calls. They were also coordinating with the doctors. My wife (Saloni) and daughters (Shannon and Annabelle) did everything possible to cheer me up. And every day they’d tell me to get well soon, so I could travel,” says Sanu, adding that, “staying near your loved ones in such times is like an emotional anchor. I was missing my family the most. I’ll be travelling to the US next week.”
Sharing his picking up during the recuperation time frame, Sanu says that one can’t pass up anything whether it’s eating dinners or requiring some investment or taking steams and getting legitimate rest. He likewise asks everybody to not disregard any sort of wellbeing concerns.
“The good thing is that people have slowly started helping each other and not shunning corona patients to a corner,” he says.
In any case, Sanu sounds upset discussing those who’re seen not wearing veil or looking after cleanliness. “If a pandemic can’t teach you, I really don’t know what really will. It’s my earnest request to everyone to follow all norms as only then can we stop the virus from spreading. We’ve to stay put till the vaccine is out,” he closes.
