Union Minister Ramdas Athawale Tests COVID-19 Positive, Hospitalised In Mumbai

Ramdas Athawale, Covid positive, has been admitted to a private hospital in south Mumbai

Mumbai:

Union minister Ramdas Athawale, whose “go corona, corona go” chant became a national sensation, tested coronavirus positive today, an official said.

The Republican Party of India (A) leader has been admitted to a private hospital in south Mumbai, he said.

In February, a video of Mr Athawale, seen with a diplomat and some monks chanting “Go corona, corona go” at a prayer meeting went viral on social media.

The video was reportedly shot at the Gateway of India in Mumbai on February 20 during a prayer session to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Mr Athawale, 60, is a member of the Rajya Sabha and Minister of State for Social Justice.

The minister is also a diabetic, an aide said.

Mr Athawale on Monday attended an event in Mumbai to induct actor Payal Ghosh into the Republican Party of India (A).
