Assembly Speaker Goel tests positive for COVID-19

New Delhi, January 12 (PTI): Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on Wednesday said that he has tested positive for COVID-19 with mild symptoms and has isolated himself at home.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator also appealed to those who have come in contact with him to get tested.

“My Covid test is positive. There are mild symptoms. I have isolated myself at home. I request all those who came in contact with me in the last few days to get their test done. Please exercise caution,” Goel tweeted in Hindi.

Goel’s family is also isolated, they said.
