Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], Aug 9 (ANI): After Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, Health Minister in the state government, B Sriramulu, also tested positive for coronavirus on Sunday.
In a series of tweets, Sriramulu said that his test results reflected he was infected with coronavirus and prayed to "the almighty" for an early recovery.
He also requested all those who had come into contact with him recently to take precautionary measures and to get tested if they develop symptoms.
The state Health Minister, meanwhile, was admitted to the Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital. He is the first government member to get admitted to a government hospital as all other MLAs had been admitted in private hospitals.

Later on Tuesday, former CM and Congress leader Siddaramaiah had also said that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and admitted himself to a hospital. (ANI)
