The ongoing COVID crisis is currently the most significant problem all over the world. This super spreader virus spared not even our favorite voice artists. One of its most recent victims being the voice actress of Kemono Friends, Yuka Ozaki.
Yuka Ozaki plays one of the main characters, Serval, of the show called Kemono Friends, an adventure anime and manga featuring endangered, extinct, and some legendary species of animals.
The voice actress and singer Yuka Ozaki got tested positive for the COVID-19 virus on May 14th. She reached out and informed the public about her illness through her managing agency Ken-On.

She informed everyone that she was in contact with a person who was tested positive for the virus. The same day she got an antigen test done and the reports came out positive as well.
But worry not; she also mentioned that it might just be a mild case because she hasn’t experienced any of the symptoms like fever, weakness, and cough yet.
Nonetheless, the singer is taking full rest and is in complete isolation while taking all the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.
Ozaki’s managing agency will also be stricter about their regulations and policies regarding COVID-19 rules in the workplace. No one wants more of the virus and hence preventing the spread is their top priority.
If it is not sad enough already, today, May 15th, also happens to be Yuka Ozaki’s birthday 🙁
Spending your birthday in a lockdown without your friends is sad but spending it all alone while being positive for Covid is just another level of sadness altogether.
I can’t even imagine how tough it would be for someone going through something like this.
The virus is very harmful and should be taken very seriously. Not only has it thoroughly disrupted our daily lives, but it has also ruined countries and economies in just a few months of its arrival.
All of our blessings and strength go out to Yuka. We wish her a heartwarming birthday and may she get well super soon!
