He has started the necessary treatment.
“I have tested Covid positive, but there is no cause for concern. I am following the treatment as suggested by my doctor,” said 81-year-old Sharad Pawar on Monday.
He called upon all who had been in contact with him in the past few days to get themselves tested, and take all necessary precautions.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi called up Sharad Pawar to enquire about his health.
