Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who has been tested positive for coronavirus, held a virtual cabinet meeting from the hospital on Tuesday. In the virtual meeting, Chouhan shared his experience with his ministerial colleagues saying that he was doing his own laundry and preparing tea.
"In the hospital, I make my own tea and wash clothes because one cannot give clothes for laundry when they are COVID-19 positive," The 61-year-old BJP leader said.
He added, "Washing clothes has benefited me in another way. Even after several physiotherapy sessions, I wasn't able to clench my fist as my hand was recently operated, but now it is perfectly fine".
