Taking to Twitter, Yediyurappa said that upon having a mild fever on Friday he got tested for Covid-19 and his report has come out positive.

“Although I am doing fine, I am being hospitalized based on the advice of doctors. I request all those who have come in my contact recently to be observant and exercise self-quarantine,” he said in his tweet.

On Thursday, Yediyurappa had returned from campaigning mid-way through Belgaum Lok Sabha from Belagavi to Bengaluru after he complained of fever and exhaustion.

Yediyurappa had been campaigning hard in the last fortnight for by-polls to three seats – the Belgaum Lok Sabha seat, the Maski Assembly seat in Raichur district, and the Basavakalyana Assembly seat in Bidar district.
