Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been tested positive for COVID-19 and has isolated himself. The announcement comes a day after he went under isolation following some of the officials of his office tested positive for the virus.
The 48-year-old said all activities of the state government are being conducted normally and urged those who came in contact with him in recent days to get themselves tested.
“When the initial symptoms were seen, I got myself tested for Covid and my report came back as positive. I am in self-isolation and fully following the instructions of physicians. I am doing all work virtually,” he tweeted in Hindi.
He had received the first dose of vaccine against COVID-19 in Lucknow earlier this month. Earlier today, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh minister Ashutosh Tandon also tested positive for COVID-19.
