Kanika took to Instagram on Sunday to express her appreciation to the health workers who have treated her. She also wrote that there were several stories going through the rounds and she was fully aware and knew some information was misrepresented. She wrote, "I know there are various versions of the stories about me out there. Some of these seem to be fueling even more because I've chosen to keep quiet until now. I stayed quiet, not because I am wrong, but because I was fully aware that misunderstandings and incorrect information exchanges have occurred. I gave time for the truth to prevail, and for people to come to realize themselves. I would like to thank my family, friends and supporters for allowing me the space when I am ready to speak. I hope and pray that, in this time, you will all be safe and careful.

She's arrived from the UK in Mumbai on March 10, according to Kanika. She was scanned in the International Airport during this time. No advisory had been issued until that time which required her to quarantine herself. On 11 March, when there was no scanning system for domestic flights, she had come to Lucknow to meet her family. On March 14th and 15th Kanika went with her friends to have lunch and dinner.

She wrote, "I'm spending some quality time with my parents at home in Lucknow. Every person I've come into contact with, be it in the UK, Mumbai or Lucknow, has shown no COVID-19 symptoms. Actually all of those tested were negative.
