Amit Shah on Sunday informed that he has tested for coronavirus and has been admitted to hospital on the advice of doctors.

The 55-year-old Union minister took to Twitter to inform about his health and requested all those who have come in contact with him in the last few days to get themselves tested for coronavirus.

Amit Shah is being treated for coronavirus at the Medanta Hospital in Gurugram.

According to sources, Home Minister Amit Shah was present in the last Cabinet meeting that took place at the prime minister’s residence. However, sources said that social distancing was strictly followed in the meeting and all ministers were wearing masks.

There is a strict protocol at PM’s residence since the last few months due to coronavirus.

Temperature checks, Aarogya Setu checks, no use of internal cars to ferry people, are some of the measures that have been adopted and are being followed for the past few months at PM’s residence, sources said.

They also said that most physical meetings are avoided and video conferences are preferred.

While Amit Shah’s contact tracing will be done, it is unclear whether all of his cabinet colleagues, who he had come in contact with in recent meetings, will undergo coronavirus tests or not.
