Shashi Tharoor Covid Positive: Congress' Shashi Tharoor Tests Positive For COVID-19
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has tested positive for COVID-19.
Mr Tharoor, 65, said his sister, his 85-year-old mother and he were all Covid-positive, and that he is "hoping to deal with it in a 'positive' frame of mind, with rest, steam & plenty of fluids".
"After waiting two days for a test appointment and another day-and-a-half for the results, I finally have confirmation: I'm Covid positive. Hoping to deal with it in a 'positive' frame of mind, with rest, steam and plenty of fluids. My sister and 85-year-old mother are in the same boat," he tweeted.
Shortly after the above tweet Mr Tharoor posted again, confirming that he and his family had taken the two required doses of the coronavirus vaccine.
"Folks should know that my sister has had two doses of the Pfizer vaccine in California and my mother and I took our second Covishield shot on April 8. So we have every reason to hope that though vaccines cannot prevent infection, they will moderate the impact of the Covid virus," he said.
