Indian Home Minister Amit Shah tests Covid-19 positive


Indian Home Minister Amit Shah has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Shah tweeted about testing Covid-19 positive on Sunday.

“On getting the initial symptoms of coronavirus, I got the test done and the report came back positive. My health is fine, but I am being admitted to the hospital on the advice of doctors. I request that all of you who have come in contact with me in the last few days, please isolate yourself and get your inquiry done,” Amit Shah’s tweet in Hindi roughly said.

The pandemic has claimed the life of an Indian minister from Uttar Pradesh. Kamal Rani Varun, 62, died at Lucknow’s Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences on Sunday morning, reports the NDTV.

India logged more than 17-lakh cases of coronavirus on Sunday – adding 1 lakh patients to the tally in just two days.

Over the last 24 years, 54,735 cases of the disease were reported in India, data from the union health ministry showed.❑
