    At the time, the deputy CM had said that he had no fever and was going into isolation.

    “Had got my Covid-19 test done after I had a mild fever. The report has come positive. I have gone into self-isolation. As of now, I have no fever or any other issue. I am fine. By your blessings, I will recover fully and return to work soon,” Manish Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi.

    Sisodia is the second minister in the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government in Delhi, who has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
