MUMBAI: Veteran Bollywood and television actor Himani Shivpuri, who was tested positive for coronavirus, on Saturday said she has been discharged from a city hospital here.

The 59-year-old actor was receiving treatment for the novel disease at Holy Spirit hospital after getting admitted on September 12.

Shivpuri said the doctors have advised her to quarantine at home as there was an improvement in her health.

"There is an improvement in my health and doctors suggested I should be in-home quarantine for 15 days and then I will get myself tested again," Shivpuri told PTI.

On Friday, the actor thanked healthcare workers in a post on her official Instagram page.

"A big thank you to our COVID warriors, the hospital staff, am back in home quarantine! Thank you all for your positive wishes," Shivpuri had posted.
