Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tests positive for COVID-19


Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday.

Gandhi took to Twitter to confirm the news tweeting: "After experiencing mild symptoms, I’ve just tested positive for COVID. All those who’ve been in contact with me recently, please follow all safety protocols and stay safe."

Rahul had earlier decided to cancel all his impending rallies in poll-bound Bengal amid the escalating coronavirus situation in the country.


He also condemned the Centre's new covid-19 vaccination policy wherein all aged 18 and above can get themselves inoculated from May 1, terming it 'discriminatory' as it leaves no guarantee for weaker sections of the eligible population.

Meanwhile, a number of Congress leaders including former prime minister Manmohan Singh and Rajya Sabha MP Anand Sharma have tested positive for COVID-9. Singh is admitted to AIIMS in Delhi.
