Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit has been tested positive for COVID-19 today. The Governor has been advised home isolation and he will be monitored by a team of doctors from the hospital.
“The Governor’s condition is mild, asymptomatic and he is clinically stable,” said a Kauvery hospital official.
The Governor was already in home isolation since July 29 when three Raj Bhavan staff had tested positive for the virus.
Earlier, 84 other Raj Bhavan personnel, mostly employees from the security and fire service department had tested positive. The Governor’s office had then said the personnel were not working in the main building and did not come in contact with the Governor or other senior officials.
