The 71-year-old leader of opposition in the state assembly has requested all those who have come into contact with him to quarantine themselves.
“Siddaramiah has been admitted to Manipal Hospitals for evaluation of fever and the antigen test for Covid-19 is positive. He is doing well and is stable currently. He is undergoing appropriate evaluation and management by a multidisciplinary team of doctors,” said Dr Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman, Manipal Hospitals.
“I have been tested positive for #Covid19 & also been admitted to the hospital on the advice of doctors as a precaution. I request all those who had come in contact with me to check out for symptoms & to quarantine themselves,” Siddaramaiah said in a tweet.
Siddaramaiah’s son Dr Yathindra Siddaramaiah said his father had a fever since Monday morning and was admitted to hospital in the night.
“He was confirmed with corona infection after the antigen test was conducted,” he said in a tweet.
Siddaramaiah has also been admitted to Manipal Hospital where Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa is undergoing treatment for coronavirus.
Yediyurappa was admitted to the hospital on Sunday night after he tested positive for coronavirus, and doctors have said he was “doing well” and is “clinically stable”.
State Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar tweeted wishing for Siddaramaiah’s speedy recovery and said he was in constant touch with Manipal hospital doctors. “His (Siddaramaiah) health is stable and there is no need to worry.”

ನಿನ್ನೆ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆಯಿಂದ ತಂದೆಯವರಿಗೆ ಜ್ವರ ಬಂದಿದ್ದು ರಾತ್ರಿ ಆಸ್ಪತ್ರೆಗೆ ದಾಖಲಾಗಿದ್ದರು. Corona antigen test ಮಾಡಲಾಗಿ ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕೊರೋನ ಸೋಂಕು ತಗುಲಿರುವುದು ಧೃಢಪಟ್ಟಿದೆ. ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗೆ ಅವರ ಸಂಪರ್ಕಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದವರು quarantine ಆಗಬೇಕೆಂದು ಕೇಳಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತೇನೆ.

ವಿಪಕ್ಷನಾಯರು, ಮಾಜಿ ಮುಖ್ಯಮಂತ್ರಿ ಸನ್ಮಾನ್ಯ ಶ್ರೀ ಸಿದ್ದರಾಮಯ್ಯನವರಿಗೆ ಕೋವಿಡ್ ಪಾಸಿಟಿವ್ ಬಂದಿರುವುದು ತಿಳಿದು ಬಂದಿದೆ. ರಾಜ್ಯ ಕಂಡ ಆದರ್ಶ ರಾಜಕಾರಣಿ ಅವರು. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಪಾಸಿಟಿವ್ ಬಂದಿರುವುದು ನನಗೆ ನೋವಾಗಿದೆ.ಆದಷ್ಟು ಬೇಗನೆ ಅವರು ಚೇತರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಗುಣಮುಖರಾಗಲಿ ಎಂದು ದೇವರಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಾರ್ಥಿಸುತ್ತೇನೆ.
