UP CM Yogi, Akhilesh Yadav test positive


LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said he has tested positive for COVID-19.

He had isolated himself even before the test results on Tuesday after some officials in his contact tested positive.

“After initial symptoms, I got myself tested. My report is positive. I am in self-isolation and following doctors advice. I am doing all the works virtually,” Adityanath tweeted from his official Twitter handle.

Adityanath had taken the first dose of Covaxin on April 5. The immunity to the virus develops several days after the second dose.

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh minister Ashutosh Tandon have also tested positive.

Yadav had recently visited Haridwar where the Kumbh Mela is underway and met various religious leaders, including Akhara Parishad chairman Mahant Narendra Giri who had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier.
