New Delhi: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time in eight months on Friday, hours after he held an emergency meeting over COVID at his residence.
Yediyurappa will be shifted to Manipal Hospital from Ramaiah Memorial hospital where he was admitted earlier today, said Karnataka Chief Minister’s Office (CMO). He requested all those who had come in contact with him recently to be observant and exercise self-quarantine, India TV reported.
“Upon having mild fever, today I got tested for Covid-19 and my report has come out positive. Although I am doing fine, I am being hospitalised based on the advise of doctors. I request all those who have come in my contact recently to be observant and exercise self-quarantine,” Yediyurappa.
The Karnataka CM had tested positive for coronavirus in August last year too. The 78-year-old BJP leader had got his first dose of COVID-19 vaccine in March, the report added.
