The 31-year-old had opened up about her COVID-19 diagnosis on April 5, writing she had "mild symptoms" and was under isolation. Now, the actress on Monday took up the mantle of a "COVID warrior" and extended support to her fans and followers on social media. She took to her Instagram handle and urged her fans to DM her if they are in genuine need of medical supply. She also alerted them that she has created a list of several resources to enable access to medical supply and asked them to help her with the same.
Sharing a statement, Bhumi wrote, "#COVIDWARRIOR Dear All, As we move into the second wave of COVID-19 across India, I have created a highlight where I will be identifying resources to enable facilitation & access to medical supplies, plasma request and donors as the case may be."
She asked fans to support her and added, "While I am trying my level best to verify the numbers/contacts which are shared with me on a rampant & daily basis, there might be some numbers which may turn out to be fake. In the event that you find any information here not helpful/fake, please do let me know & I will immediately remove the same."
"This initiative is my small contribution to the huge battle that lies ahead to us. Please be patient & don't lose hope! We're in this together. Love, Bhumi," the actress stated.
