“A group of doctors did three different tests and concluded that I am COVID-19 test negative and that the earlier result was due to a faulty RT-PCR kit,” the actor tweeted with a note in Telugu and an attachment to his test report.
"Time and corona has played with me for the last four days. After my samples tested positive on Sunday, I started medications. However, as I did not have any symptoms even two days later, I approached the doctors at the Apollo Hospital. After a CT scan, they said that there were no traces of the virus or any infection in my chest. To reconfirm, I took the test again using three types of kits,” Chiranjeevi said in the note.
Initially, there were concerns after he tested positive, as he had met with Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), along with other film celebrities.
After this result he is likely to join the sets of Acharaya to resume his shooting which was closed after he tested positive.
