Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa tested positive for Covid-19 for the second time in eight months and was being shifted to a private hospital for treatment.

"Upon having mild fever, today I got tested for Covid-19 and my report has come out positive. Although I am doing fine, I am being hospitalized based on the advice of doctors," he later tweeted.

The 78-year-old was earlier hospitalized on August 2, 2020, after he tested positive for coronavirus.

He requested all those who had come in contact with him recently to be observant and exercise self-quarantine.

"As the Chief Minister was suffering from fever, he had gone to Ramaiah hospital for a general checkup, where Covid test was conducted and as the report has come positive, he will be shifted to the Manipal Hospital," the CMO said in a statement.

Yediyurappa was last year admitted to the same Manipal Hospital for nine days, and was discharged on recovery.

The chief minister had cut short his campaign program for by-polls in Belagavi on Thursday, due to high fever and exhaustion, official sources said.

Earlier today, he had chaired an emergency meeting with Health Minister K Sudhakar and top officials for about one-and-half hours regarding the Covid situation in the state and had addressed the media.
