According to media reports, Bharti is in quarantine at Vande Mataram Kunj located between Haridwar and Rishikesh in Uttarakhand.
The news has been confirmed by Bharti herself.
Taking to Twitter, Bharti on late Saturday said: “I want to bring it in your notice, that on the last day on my mountain journey I called up a Corona test team following the request by the administration because I had mild fever for last three days.”
“Despite following all legal prohibition for Covid-19 and social distancing at Himalayas I have turned out to be Corona positive,” she added.
“Right now I am at Vande Mataram Kunj located between Haridwar and Rishikesh which is like my family. I will undergo a test again after four days and if the situation persists then I will take a decision in consultation with doctors,” the former Union minister said.
Bharti has urged the people, who came into her contact in the last few days, to get themselves tested for COVID19.
“All… who came into my contact… I appeal to them to get their corona tests done and take precautions,” Bharti said.
