Jain attended a high-level meeting on the coronavirus situation in the national capital, chaired by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, which was also attended by Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia and Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan.
On Wednesday, Jain was tested twice this week after he developed signs of Covid-19, including high fever and breathing difficulty. The 55-year-old leader’s test result came positive on Wednesday evening after a second test.
On June 16, Jain was admitted to the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital (RGSSH), a dedicated COVID-19 facility under the city government in east Delhi.
Earlier, on June 9, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had tested for the coronavirus after he complained of mild fever and sore throat. His test report, however, came out as negative.
