Days after television actor Arjun Bijlani’s wife, Neha Swami, was diagnosed with Covid-19, their five-year-old son Ayaan has tested positive for the virus. Arjun, however, has shown a negative result in both his tests.

In an Instagram post, Arjun shared that Ayaan’s PCR test showed a positive result for Covid-19, although his rapid antigen test was negative. “The moment that I dreaded the most has unfortunately come true. My boy, Ayaan, has also tested positive for the coronavirus. Though the rapid test had come negative, the detailed PCR test came positive. He is in quarantine with my wife, Neha, who is also fighting the virus,” he wrote.

Talking about his own diagnosis, Arjun said that he tested negative both times. “Both my tests have come negative, and I wish it stays the same so that I can take care of my family, even if it is from a distance,” he wrote.
