Bathinda MP and ex-Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal tested COVID-19 positive on Friday. The cook and two more workers at her Badal village residence also tested positive for the deadly disease, said sources.  

Notably, Harsimrat held a few meetings with SAD workers in Bathinda on Thursday. 

Sources shared that she was "doing fine, but isolated herself, following the Health Department's guidelines". 

"Dear all, I've tested positive for COVID-19 today with mild symptoms. I have quarantined myself at home and am taking all the necessary precautions. I would request all those who came in contact with me to isolate and get themselves tested at the earliest,' the former Union Minister shared on Twitter.

Earlier, her husband, SAD Chief-cum-Ferozepur MP Sukhbir Singh Badal had tested COVID-19 positive on March 16. He was discharged from a Gurugram private hospital on March 24.

Meanwhile, security personnel and other workers who were deployed at the Badal's residence had also tested COVID-19 positive earlier.
