Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier tested positive for Covid-19. On Sunday, he said he had recovered from the infection. “After recovering from Corona, I am back at your service,” Kejriwal had tweeted in Hindi.
India has been seeing a steady surge in Covid-19 cases, being driven by the Omicron variant that was first detected in South Africa.
Defence minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said he was infected by the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) and that his symptoms were mild and he was isolating at home.
“I have tested positive for Corona today with mild symptoms. I am under home quarantine. I request everyone who have recently come in my contact to isolate themselves and get tested,” the defence minister wrote on Twitter.
