Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur on Monday said he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Thakur, in a tweet, said he had quarantined himself at his residence last week after coming in contact with someone who had coronavirus.

“On doctor’s advice, I have isolated myself at my official residence,” he added.

Apart from Thakur, his Karnataka counterpart B S Yediyurappa and Haryana CM M L Khattar have tested positive earlier since the pandemic began. Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Prema Khandu too tested positive last month but a repeat test came out negative.
