“I got myself tested for coronavirus and the result has come back positive,” he wrote. “I am in isolation and feeling well. I request all those who came in contact with me recently to isolate themselves and get tested.”
मैंने कोरोना टेस्ट करवाया और रिपोर्ट पॉजिटिव आई है। मैं एकांतवास में हूं और मेरी तबीयत ठीक है। मेरा अनुरोध है कि आप में से जो भी लोग गत कुछ दिनों में मेरे संपर्क में आयें हैं, कृपया स्वयं को आइसोलेट कर अपनी जाँच करवाएं।

He would be under home quarantine in Manali till he recovers completely. He is following all the instructions given by the authorities and taking necessary precautions," the statement read.
