“I spoke to him (Satyendar Jain) just a few minutes ago and his respiratory rate is stable,” said AAP MLA, Raghav Chadha, this morning.
In a reply to Jain’s tweet, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal told Jain that he has been serving the people 24*7 without taking care of himself and wished him a speedy recovery.
Kejriwal went into self-isolation last week after experiencing COVID-like symptoms including fever and sore throat. He later tested negative for the virus.
Delhi, which has recorded 42,000 cases so far has the third-highest number of infections after Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.
