Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who on Saturday confirmed that he had contracted the COVID-19 virus, said on Sunday that he is absolutely fine and urged all those showing symptoms of the infection to get themselves tested. He said that “there is no need to fear”.
Chouhan tweeted his message through a video saying, ” I am absolutely fine, my friends. The dedication of coronavirus warriors, who selflessly risk their lives, is praiseworthy. I salute all coronavirus warriors of the state who are working for their patients.”
“If you are infected, there is no need to fear. Do not hide symptoms but tell doctors immediately, so treatment can be started. Timely treatment will make you healthy,” he said.
प्रिय प्रदेशवासियों, आपको #COVID19 से डरने की जरूरत नहीं है। लक्षण प्रकट होते ही टेस्ट कराएं और पॉजिटिव होने पर तत्काल इलाज शुरू करवाएं तो कोरोना पर विजय अवश्य मिलेगी।
