Delhi: CM Arvind Kejriwal tests negative for coronavirus
New Delhi : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has tested negative for the coronavirus on Tuesday, one day after he went into self-isolation after he developed coronavirus symptoms like cough, sour throat and mild fever.
Aam Aadmi Party sources said that he was feeling slightly better when he went for the test.
51-year-old Arvind Kejriwal was feeling unwell since Saturday and has not met anyone since then.
"He is running a fever and has a sore throat, which happen to be COVID symptoms. So doctors have advised him to take a test tomorrow," AAP MLA Raghav Chadha told NDTV on Monday.
There was greater concern because Mr Kejriwal is diabetic, Mr Chadha said.
Delhi, meanwhile, has shown a spike in the total number of coronavirus cases as the national capital is registering around 1000 cases everyday.
On Monday, the number of cases crossed the 29,000-mark with 2,289 new infections while the number of deaths climbed to 812, the last health bulletin issued by the Delhi government said.
