Who is Chinna Dua?
Padmavati Dua aka Chinna Dua was not only a radiologist but also a social media influencer. She described herself as a “medical doctor, singer, passionate cook, saree wearer, vlogger, mom, and human,” on her Instagram account.
Chinna Dua in her last update on Instagram wrote, "Good day. Hope you all are fine. At this stage we would all love miracles… Shraddha and saburi i.e. faith and patience is the only way to tide over. So stability and status quo are to be thankful for which is how it is right now. There are samples taken in the middle of the night. Sleep is disturbed for medicines, sponging, meals and what nots leaving one exhausted at times… Please continue with your prayers."
Mallika Dua also tested positive for Covid-19 recently. She had announced it on her Instagram with a post that reads, "I've been away from here past few days as things got too dark to take. Few Updates: I was diagnosed COVID positive a few days ago and got admitted to the hospital once fever started rising. A good decision as I'm being looked after well and am much better. Except for slight cough I'm fine."
