The 55-year-old Minister tweeted: “Due to high grade fever and a sudden drop of my oxygen levels last night I have been admitted to RGSSH. Will keep everyone updated (sic)”.

Replying to his post, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi: “You kept serving the public 24*7 without taking care of yourself. Please take care of your health and get well soon.”

Last week, the Chief Minister had tested negative for coronavirus after he went into self-isolation at his home. He had a bout of fever and throat pain.

Delhi is among worst affected States along with Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. The total positive cases have mounted to 42,000.
