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.
â€œWhen 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,â€ 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.
