BJP President Adesh Gupta on Wednesday informed that he has tested positive for COVID-19 after exhibiting some symptoms and urged those who recently came in contact with him to get tested.

"Last week I got tested for COVID after having a mild fever, for which the report came back negative. Due to continued poor health, I got tested for again and have tested positive. Although I have been in quarantine for the past week, if someone has come in contact with me, they should also get tested," he tweeted (roughly translated from Hindi).

Notably, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has also tested positive for the novel following which he has isolated himself.
