Bengaluru: Despite Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s appeal to all those who had come in contact with him to isolate themselves as he had tested positive for COVID-19, Health Minister K Sudhakar refused to quarantine himself.

The state Health Minister was a part of the high-level meeting chaired by CM at his official residence in Bengaluru on Friday, April 16 following which he was shifted to Manipal hospital.

Addressing presspersons Sudhakar told, “BS Yediyurappa would have informed people whoever was with him. If your asking me, then let me make it clear I am a COVID warrior. Like how doctors are working in hospitals, like how supporting staff working in Hospital, like how our paramedical team is working in the state, likewise even I am working to suppress corona from the state by leading as a minister. Please don’t involve me in this petty politics”, Karnataka Health Minister K Sudhakar said when asked why he was not isolating himself.

BS Yediyurappa tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time and was shifted to Manipal hospital. CM, who was campaigning in Belagavi for the upcoming by-elections, was suffering from fever and had also undergone an Antigen test whose results returned negative following which he visited the hospital.
