Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating himself, he tweeted this afternoon.
The announcement comes a day after he went under isolation following some of his officials of his office testing positive for the virus.
Aditynath 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," the 48-year-old tweeted in Hindi.
His announcement comes on the same as that of his predecessor, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, who too has tested positive for COVID-19. He had received the first dose of vaccine against the virus in Lucknow earlier this month.
