Bollywood singer Shweta Pandit resides in Italy with her husband but all's not well in their paradise currently. No, we aren't talking about their mutual differences here but the outbreak of coronavirus globally. The virus that originated from Wuhan, China has already claimed close to 8,000 Italian lives and the country still struggles to curb its outbreak. While the government there has already issued lockdown as a preventive measure, Shweta took to her Instagram account to share an update on this scary scenario.

In a video shared on her social media site, Shweta narrated her scary experience by saying, "Doston mein khud pichle ek mahine se apne kamre se bahar nahi nikli hoon, aur yeh usse pehle jab yahaki government ne lockdown announce kiya tha. Kyuki jab hume pata chala ki ek aisi bimari yaha fel chuki hai, jiska hume pata bhi nahi ki yeh kab hua aur kisse milne se hua aur yeh ek sadharan sa sardi, zukham hai ya kuch aur. Jab tak aadmi apne doctor ke paas jata hai, apne hospital jaata hai, tab usse pata chalta hai ki usse ICU ki zarurat hai, usse oxygen ki zarurat hai aur kuch hi din baad uski death bhi hojati hai.”
