Union Home Minister Amit Shah tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday. The home minister has been admitted to Medanta hospital in Gurugram. Shah is showing mild symptoms for coronavirus.

Shah took to Twitter to announce that he has been tested positive for coronavirus and admitted to a hospital on the advice of doctors.

"I have undergone a coronavirus test after showing initial symptoms and have tested positive. My health is fine but I am getting admitted to a hospital on the advice of doctors," he tweeted in Hindi.

The 55-year-old minister said he was fine. He also requested those who had come in contact with him in the last few days to get tested for coronavirus and isolate themselves. On Saturday, Shah addressed a webinar 'Lokmanya Tilak: Swaraj to Atmanirbhar Bharat' organised by ICCR Delhi on the 100th death anniversary of Lokmanya Tilak.

Doctors will be monitoring Shah's oxygen-level. Union minister Babul Supriyo told India Today channel that he will self-isolate himself as he met the home minister couple of days ago.

Meanwhile, several ministers have wished Shah a speedy recovery, including IB minster Ravi Shankar Prasad.
