Khammam: Transport Minister Puvvada Ajay Kumar has tested positive for coronavirus.
Taking to social media on Tuesday, the Minister said he underwent the Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT -PCR) test on Monday and has tested positive for covid-19.
Stating that he is now in home isolation at Minister’s quarters in Hyderabad, Ajay Kumar thanked party workers and friends who expressed concern at his health condition and advised them neither to call him nor try to meet him. He told them that he will share updates on his health with them.
He also asked the party workers and friends who met him recently to undergo Covid-19 tests. The Minister, as a practice, has been testing himself for covid-19 at regular intervals since he moves among the public.
#RTPCR పరీక్షల్లో నాకు #COVID పాజిటివ్ అని తేలింది.దయచేసి నాకు ఫోన్ చేయడానికీ, కలుసుకోవడానికీ ప్రయత్నించకండి. నాతో కార్యక్రమాల్లో పాల్గొన్న ప్రతి ఒక్కరు టెస్ట్ చేసుకోవాలని మనవి. హోం ఐసోలాషన్ లో ఉన్నాను. ఆందోళన చెందాల్సిన పని లేదు. మళ్ళీ యధావిధిగా అన్ని కార్యక్రమాల్లో పాల్గొంటాను.
