As coronavirus cases in the country surge, Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Atishi tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. The East Delhi MLA has shown mild symptoms of the virus and has self-isolated herself at home.

Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to twitter to wish for Atishi’s speedy recovery as he said, “Atishi has made a significant contribution in fight against coronavirus. I hope she recovers soon and once again help people.”

Delhi’s Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who on Tuesday tested negative for coronavirus, will be tested again for the virus. Jain was admitted to the Rajiv Gandhi Super specialty Hospital on Monday night.

Speaking on his condition, Satyendar Jain had said, “Due to high grade fever and a sudden drop of my oxygen levels last night I have been admitted to RGSSH. Will keep everyone updated”.

According to ministry of health data, the national capital has reported 44,688 cases of coronavirus till now. The death toll in the state reached 1,837 on Wednesday.

However, the Supreme Court on Wednesday pulled up the AAP government for mistreating doctors, messengers and paramedics who were speaking on the on-ground situation. “You cannot try to suppress numbers. You cannot shoot the messenger which is what you are doing… You are sending a wrong signal”, Justice Ashok Bhusan said.
