The entire hell broke loose when Amitabh Bachchan tweeted on Saturday night that he has contracted the virus. A few minutes later, his son and actor Abhishek Bachchan tweeted the same and mentioned that both he and Big B have got mild symptoms and are admitted to the Nanavati Hospital. On Sunday, as the swab test reports of the rest of the family members came out, it was revealed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter have also been detected positive for the coronavirus. Now, as reported by NDTV 24×7, the doctors have advised the mother-daughter duo to stay at home under self-quarantine and not get admitted to the hospital. The rest of the family members – Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Nanda and her kids Agastya and Navya Naveli have not been tested positive as of now. More tests will be conducted after two weeks to assess the changes.
