Congress leader Manish Tewari tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.

Tewari, the Member of Parliament for Anandpur Sahib, said in a tweet that he got himself tested on Monday morning after running a fever the previous night. He also said he showed no other symptoms.  

Tewari’s tweet read: “I have tested positive for COVID -19 today afternoon. I got up with mild fever around 2 AM last night. Got myself tested first thing in the morning. Two parallel tests. No other symptoms so far. All those who have been in contact with me over the past few days are advised caution”.

The development comes a day after another Congress leader, Ahmed Patel, had to be admitted to an Intensive Care Unit of Gurugram’s Mendanta Hospital in the national capital days after he tested positive for coronavirus.
