- "I think this is my 20th Covid test," Preity said in the video
- "I have become the Covid test queen," she added
- Preity Zinta is currently in Dubai for the IPL
Actress Preity Zinta, who is the co-owner of the IPL team Kings XI Punjab, is in Dubai for the Indian Premier League. Preity is adhering to the rules of the bio bubble set up to ensure a safe environment for everyone who is part of the IPL. In doing so, she often shares glimpses of the regular COVID-19 tests she has to undertake every few days. On Tuesday, she posted one in which a medical staff member can be seen taking a nasal swab with Preity saying: "She is amazing. She's the best person to get the Covid test done with." Preity's video prompted many of her Instafam to say that: "Yours was so easy... I have taken five and they push the swab right inside further into your nose" - this is what celebrity fitness trainer Deannne Pandey wrote. "She didn't do it the right way," commented a user while another added: "To be honest, that wasn't a good technique."
In the video, Preity can be heard saying: "I think this is my 20th Covid test. I have become the Covid test queen." Preity Zinta explained how it is like to be living inside a bio bubble. The Bio Bubble which is a secure environment, restricted to a certain parameter, and cut-off from the outside world, to ensure safety for the IPL players, staff and crew members in the times of COVID-19.
Everyone asks me what does it mean being in the IPL team bio bubble. Well ! It's starts with a 6 day quarantine, covid tests every 3-4 days and no going out - only ur room, designated #KXIP restaurant & gym & of course the stadium in ur car. The drivers, chefs etc are also in the bio bubble & quarantined so No food from outside & no people interaction. It's tough if ur a free bird like me but then it's 2020 & one must appreciate that #IPL is actually happening in the middle of a pandemic. I must thank #BCCI, the staff of KXIP & @sofiteldubaipalm for all their efforts in keep us safe & productive 🙏 #Grateful #pzipldiaries #Ipl2020 #Dream11 #Ting ❤️ @kxipofficial
In between Kings XI Punjab's IPL matches, Preity made a quick trip back home to Los Angeles and touched back in Dubai a week ago. During her one-week quarantine period, Preity attended online yoga classes and hit the gym for an endorphin rush.
Feels good to be back in the gym after all the travel and quarantine. It feels tough, but then if it was easy it wouldn't really be worth it so Bring on the endorphins 👊 Thank you @sofiteldubaipalm for creating this special gym for us. You guys are the best 🙏 #ipldiaries #pzfit #ipl #ipl2020 #dream11 #ting ❤️
