Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, who was admitted to U N Mehta Heart Hospital in Ahmedabad last night, has tested positive for Covid-19 today.

A medical bulletin issued by the hospital has stated that his sample for RT-PCR, which was taken Sunday night, has come positive.

The development in health comes a day after Chief Minister fainted on stage while delivering a speech in Vadodara. He was then taken to Ahmedabad hospital where several tests were conducted.

“Rupaniji fainted due to tiredness and dehydration. We have done a thorough checkup and all his tests are normal,” Dr R K Patel from the U N Mehta Hospital, where the Chief Minister is admitted, told reporters today.
