Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat, who was expected to be in Delhi for a four-day visit, informed this afternoon that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
In his tweet, the Bharatiya Janata Party leader said he has gone under self-isolation. "My coronavirus test report has come out to be positive. I am doing fine and facing no issues at all. I have gone under self-isolation under supervision of doctors. All those who have come in contact with me recently, please get yourself tested and take precautions."
The 56-year-old had met BJP president JP Nadda at his residence in the national capital on Friday. He planned to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union home minister Amit Shah and other cabinet ministers in Delhi during his visit.
Rawat was sworn in earlier this month after the resignation of Trivendra Singh Rawat.
