Delhi Transport and Law Minister Kailash Gahlot tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday.
Gahlot tweeted, “I have tested positive for Covid-19 today. I have home isolated myself. All those who came in contact with me recently please take necessary precautions.”
Among the Delhi Cabinet Ministers, Health Minister Satyendar Jain and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had tested positive earlier. Both had been admitted to the hospital after their condition deteriorated.
While Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Sisodia have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, the other Cabinet ministers are yet to get the jab.
For over the last two days, the city has been recording over 10,000 Covid-19 cases daily, with health experts attributing the reason for the surge to the presence of a more “infectious strain”.
