This TVB Actress Filmed Two Shows On The Day Her Sister, Whom She Lives With, Was Diagnosed With COVID-19
Guess this serves as a reminder as to how important the whole stay home movement and safe distancing is. On March 31, Hongkong media reported that the sister of TVB actress Aurora Li had tested postive for COVID-19. The news has created panic amongst her colleagues as Aurora, who had been in close contact with her sister, was at work on the day of the diagnosis.
Aurora, 28, had reportedly filmed scenes for TVB drama Warm Bodies as well as variety show All Things Girl on that day, which meant that she had come into contact with a number of the cast, like actresses Snow Suen and Kayan Choi, and the crew of both productions. It's said that her colleagues weren’t wearing masks since they had to appear on camera.
According to reports, Aurora had informed the producer of All Things Girl of her sister's diagnosis after they had shot the first scene. TVB has since released a statement saying that Aurora immediately went to get tested for COVID-19 and that her results are thankfully negative.
In an interview with reporters, Aurora apologised for the worry she has caused her colleagues and company. She also said that she is under self-quarantine now and that TVB has suspended all her current jobs.
Still, Aurora's colleagues are understandably worried. Snow told reporters that she “does not dare return home”, as she has a two-year-old son. The 37-year-old actress also said that she would be self-isolating away from home, in order to play it safe.
“I heard that Aurora has tested negative, but you have to take the test three times for the results to be accurate,” said Snow, adding that TVB has directed her to a medical centre for testing as well.
Kayan also said that she would be isolating herself at home for the next 14 days, in order to ensure everyone’s safety. For the time being, the 25-year-old actress does not intend to get tested for COVID-19.
It's said that the other stars who were involved in the filming of All Things Girl, like Hongkong singer Jinny Ng, 27, Malaysian-born actress Jacqueline Ch’ng, 39, and Hongkong actress Bowie Cheung, 28, all did not have prolonged contact with Aurora. And since Aurora has tested negative for COVID-19, they would just monitor their own condition over the next 14 days.
