Another BJP bigwig tests Covid positive: After Amit Shah, K’taka CM BSY catches infection

Bookanakere Siddalingappa Yediyurappa, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, tested positive and has been moved to a hospital. 77 years old, he has been admitted to Manipal Hospital. In a twitter post, he wrote that while he is feeling fine, doctors advised him to be isolated in a hospital. He also asked those who, not long ago, was with him to remain cautious and vigilant of possible coronavirus symptoms and self-quarantine.

Members of his staff had also tested positive for coronavirus at the start of July. He was also present in a cabinet meeting last week with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. Another meeting was held on Friday with Vajubhai Vala, Karnataka Governor, and Basavaraj Bommai, the Home Minister of Karnataka. Both os these meetings were held in person and were not virtual, but it is reported that strict social distancing guidelines were observed in both.

Earlier, Amit Shah had also revealed that he had tested positive for coronavirus but was also feeling fine and doctors advised him to be admitted to a hospital. This suggests that both, B.S. Yediyurappa and Amit Shah have a mild case of coronavirus and would probably be recovering from the disease soon enough.

The Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also tested positive for coronavirus but tweeted that he had recovered from it. Sometime later, CM Yediyurappa tweeted about his condition as well, to which he retweeted, that he would pray to God for his quick recovery.

Previously, he had also posted on Twitter about Amit Shah, praying to God so they may help him recover soon, so he may serve the country with full vigour.
