Bharat Ratna awardee Lata Mangeshkar is taking extra precautions against the coronavirus, especially after being hospitalised for a lung infection recently.

The singer, who is staying at home like everyone else, says, “I am extremely careful. I am not meeting anyone and even if it is a family member, it is a ‘Hi, hello, how are you?’ from a distance.”

 

Mangeshkar adds that she is diligently following her doctors’ instructions. “I am following my two personal doctors’ and three nurses’ orders blindly. Whatever they say I can’t do, I don’t even think about it,” she says.

When asked if she listens to her old classic songs, during this self isolation time, she replied, “Never. Once I record my songs, I don’t go back to them. I spend my time doing riyaz, puja, and watching TV.”
