Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has tested positive for Covid-19. He tweeted on April 14 afternoon that he is self-isolating. The announcement comes a day after he went under isolation following some of the members of his office testing positive for the virus. The 48-year-old said all activities of the state government are being conducted normally and urged those who came in contact with him in recent days to get themselves tested. Yogi Adityanath's announcement comes on the same day as that of his predecessor, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, who too has tested positive for Covid-19. Apart from monitoring the Covid-19 situation in the state, the Chief Minister had been actively campaigning for his party, the BJP, in West Bengal that is voting in eight-phase assembly election. Last week, the Uttar Pradesh government ordered the closure of all schools till April 30. It also directed to impose night curfews from 9 pm to 6 am in districts reporting more than 100 new infections every day. Uttar Pradesh recorded a single-day spike of 17,963 coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours. 85 people died of the disease in the same period.
