Covid-19: Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa says he’s infected, in Manipal Hospital | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa late Sunday night tweeted he has tested positive for Covid-19 and has been admitted to Manipal Hospitals on the advice of doctors as a precautionary measure.
Sources in the CM’s office said that the 77-year-old leader’s results came positive as part of the once-in-seven-days tests conducted by the health department. Three of his colleagues — CT Ravi, Anand Singh and BC Patil — recently tested positive. He is the second CM, after his Madhya Pradesh counterpart Shivraj Singh Chouhan, to be infected with the coronavirus.

Yediyurappa tweeted at 11.30pm: “I have tested positive for coronavirus. Whilst I am fine, I am being hospitalised as a precaution on the recommendation of doctors. I request those who have come in contact with me recently to be observant and exercise selfquarantine.” Sources said the CM recently met governor Vajubhai Vala and the latter is likely to undergo tests.
