Adnan Siddiqui is out of quarantine and has a request for ‘panic buttons’ — stop giving advice

Telling someone he is going towards death with Godspeed after the sixth day of quarantine is criminal, he said.

Actor Adnan Siddiqui is finally out of quarantine and has recovered from Covid and he has a request for some of his well-wishers — please stop giving unnecessary advice.

The actor posted a video message announcing his recovery on Instagram.

I’m feeling absolutely fine, he said in his video. I wrote, I read and I even cooked a little, but there’s one thing I decided I didn’t want — other people’s advice. “A weaker man would be gotten scared and perhaps died of that,” he said.

He thanked his fans and well-wishers who prayed for his recovery and said he felt very blessed.

“But special gratitude is reserved for the ones who I call Panic Buttons. I may have personally not pressed as many in my entire life as the ones I spoke to in this isolation period,” he wrote in the post caption.

“The main objective of their calls was to show concern albeit in a manner that completely defied the purpose. Over these days, I have had the pleasure of memorizing names of medicines, supplements, making imaginary dietary plans, random mental visits to doctors; all this while only making the right sounds of hmmms and grunts. Funnily enough, these well-wishers followed up on too with the same diligence as they called,” said Siddiqui.

“My only word of advice to these over-diligent souls is: please do not call those who have tested positive if all you have in your script is how worse it can be. Telling someone he is going towards death with Godspeed after [the] sixth day is criminal,” the actor wrote.

“After two weeks of enduring this onslaught myself, I am seriously mulling to write to the government to pass a law against such calls and prosecute those who violate.”

Everyone can probably relate to Siddiqui’s worries about these ‘panic buttons’ as we all know people who love handing out advice, whether it’s asked for or not. Though you may have the best of intentions, it’s always best to leave medical advice to medical professionals.
