COVID …Vice President Venkaiah Naidu tests Positive for Covid, says VP office


NEW DELHI: Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu tested positive for Covid-19 and has gone in home quarantine on Tuesday. The vice president is asymptomatic and in good health, the VP’s official Twitter account said. 

Naidu had participated in the brief Monsoon session of Parliament held earlier this month, in his capacity as chairperson of the Rajya Sabha.

Reports said Naidu’s wife, Usha, has tested negative and is in self-isolation. Naidu underwent a Covid-19 test on Tuesday morning and was found to be infected. “The Vice President of India who underwent a routine Covid-19 test today morning has been tested positive. He is however, asymptomatic and in good health. He has been advised home quarantine. 

A minister in the Modi government had died a few days ago due to Covid, the first minister to lose his life to Covid, despite hospitalization. India’s former president Pranab Mukherjee too died a few days after he was tested postive for Covid, though the death was mainly a consequence of his head injury in a fall in a bathroom. IHN=NN
