Lucknow: Seventeen days after testing positive, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath won the battle against the deadly second strain of coronavirus on Friday.

Under home isolation at his official 5, Kalidas Marg residence since April 14, the Chief Minister’s report came negative on April 30. A private covid room was also booked and kept reserved for the Chief Minister at the SGPGIMS for any emergency.

During the 16-day isolation period, he continued working relentlessly holding daily virtual meetings with Team-11, monitoring the situation, and chalking out strategy and plans to tackle the second spell of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

In a tweet on Friday morning, the Chief Minister thanked all his well-wishers and said: “With your wishes and physicians’ care, I am corona negative now. I thank you all for your cooperation and wishes.”

The Deputy Chief Minister Dr Dinesh Sharma and his wife Dr Jaishree are still under covid-19 treatment at the SGPGIMS. They had tested positive two days after the Chief Minister. After home isolation, they were rushed to the SGPGIMS after developing breathing trouble.
