He also asked those who had been in touch with him a few days ago to undergo a covid test and stay in isolation.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar informed that 20 other state parliamentarians have also been infected. He stressed the need for high vigilance from the general public as the coronavirus epidemic is spreading rapidly.

He said that the epidemic has spread due to non-observance of the rules enforced by the government and negligence. He further added, "Please comply with the government's request, be careful on your own, otherwise the situation could be dire."

He informed that a meeting of stakeholders and experts has been convened to discuss the new measures to be taken for controlling the epidemic and they are being consulted from time to time.
