Bihar Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi informed that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and was undergoing treatment. He also said that his parameters were fine, and he was looking forward to hitting the campaign trail soon in the poll-bound state.
Sushil Modi is one of the tallest leaders of the BJP in Bihar, had been missing from action for quite some time and was conspicuous by his absence when Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman released the party’s manifesto earlier in the day.
He tweeted, “Tested positive for corona. All parameters normal. Started with mild temperature (but) no temperature for last two days. Admitted to AIIMS, Patna for better monitoring. CT scan of lungs normal. Will be back soon for campaigning,”
