Veteran actor Rubina Ashraf had tested positive for COVID-19 a week earlier and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) due to deteriorating health. The 60-years-old actor is admitted to a private hospital while she battles the novel coronavirus.
However, the actor's daughter Minna Tariq has shared that Rubina is doing better and is recovering gradually. She took to Instagram to share details of her mother's health.
“I request everyone to please avoid spreading misinformation about my mother Rubina Ashraf, she is fine and recovering. Please pray for her speedy recovery,” Minna wrote on her Instagram Story.
