“I have faith that we will beat coronavirus with your wishes and return to work with the same determination. I request my colleagues to get themselves tested,” Silwat tweeted.
He also added that both he and his wife have quarantined themselves at home as per doctors’ orders.
“People close to me are also quarantining themselves. Treatment consultation, immunity-boosting drugs, yoga, pranayam vyayam and strength of self are the solutions for Covid. We will definitely beat it,” Silawat said.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was admitted to a hospital here on last Saturday after he tested positive for the coronavirus.
