Indonesian celebrity couple, singer-turned-entrepreneur Anang Hermansyah and singer Ashanty, as well as three of their children, have become the latest high profile COVID-19 cases in Indonesia after they all tested positive for the coronavirus.
The news was revealed by Ashanty’s assistant Vyndika through a series of Instagram stories on her account.
“She had fever, flu, cough, and a high temperature, breathing difficulties, she took a PCR [swab] test last night and we got a positive result early this morning,” one Instagram story about Ashanty reads.
“Everyone at home was also tested and those who tested positive were Kakak Loly, Jiel, and Arsy,” Vyndika wrote, referring to 22-year-old Aurel and 20-year-old Azriel Hermansyah — Anang’s children from his previous marriage with Indonesian diva Krisdayanti — and 6-year-old Arsy Hermansyah, his first daughter with Ashanty. The announcement didn’t mention Asrya Hermansyah, the youngest child in the family.
Vyndika also asked the public to pray for the family’s recovery from the viral disease.
Additionally, Aurel also took to Instagram to announce the positive test result, while urging those who were in close contact with her family to take a COVID-19 test immediately.
