An MLA of the ruling BJP in Gujarat was admitted to a hospital on Monday after he tested positive for coronavirus, his office said.

The legislator had a fever since the last few days and he eventually tested positive for COVID-19, said a release by his office.

He was admitted to a hospital on Monday, the release said.

He is the third MLA from Gujarat to be infected by the virus.
