New Delhi: Chief Minster of New Delhi and Aam Aadmi Chief Arvind Kejriwal has gone into self-quarantine and will take a coronavirus test after complaints of mild fever and a sore throat.
According to the AAP spokes person, Kejriwal, had been unwell since Sunday afternoon and has isolated himself at his official home in Delhi.
“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 news channel NDTV, describing Kejriwal as a frontline COVID-19 warrior who had put himself at risk in Delhi’s virus fight.
“The symptoms started showing since yesterday afternoon. He hasn’t interacted with anyone since then. There were largely meetings over the last few days over video. But he did come in direct contact with members of the party, cabinet, bureaucrats,” Chadha said.
The Chief Minister on Sunday had addressed a brief digital press conference to announce a new policy of reserving hospital beds for residents of Delhi.
Kejriwal declared that hospitals run by the Delhi government would be reserved only for residents of the capital, amid complaints of coronavirus patients or suspected patients being denied hospital beds. He also said Delhi would reopen its borders.
Delhi has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases and over 1,000 new cases daily for the past few days. There are over 27,600 cases in the capital.
