Rachel White shares experience of facing stigmatisation as Covid-19 patient in Kolkata

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 20 Jul 2020, 05:27 pm

Kolkata/IBNS: Actress Rachel White on Monday shared an experience of getting stigmatised as a Covid-19 patient in Kolkata.

Rachel on Monday took to social media to share that the watchman of her building was about to get sacked from his job for allowing the actress to enter as a Covid patient.

India Blooms has confirmed from Rachel that the incident had occurred in Kolkata.

In a series of tweets, she said, "I heard from my building watchman that he was about to be fired from his job , reason being , ‘he allowed me to enter my building after I tested COViD positive’ ! Spoke to my building secretary and in my most unwell breathless state told him to GO TO HELL and warned them that I can take legal action if I want to. I think they’ll simply gossip behind my back now.

"But atleast no harassment for me directly. But This is for a property that belongs to me , can just wonder what it must be like out there and if it is a rented house, god save them fromthe mental stress and embarrassment. Stop ostracising Covid patients.

"If Covid is here to stay then I Request the Govt to please spread more awareness on this matter. A lonely battle is enough to deal with, no one needs more. Maintain distance but please don’t be emotionally distant. Remember it could be you tomorrow."

Rachel, more than a week ago, had confirmed that she had tested positive for Covid-19 pandemic.

On the work front, the actress was last seen in Bengali film 'Thai Curry' which released in 2019.
