New Delhi, Jan 23: Vice president of India M Venkaiah Naidu tested positive for the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) on Sunday. In a post from his official Twitter handle, Naidu tweeted saying he has tested positive for the coronavirus infection and that he’ll be going into self-isolation for a week.
He also advised his close contacts to get themselves tested and isolate to cut the further spread of the virus. This is for the second time that Naidu has been infected with the virus.
“Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, who is in Hyderabad, tested COVID positive today. He has decided to remain in self-isolation for a week. He has advised all those who came in contact with him to isolate themselves and get tested,” the Vice President Secretariat tweeted.
It seems unlikely that he will participate in Republic Day celebrations on Wednesday.
