Former prime minister Manmohan Singh tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday.
Party sources maintain that Singh's condition is stable and he has been admitted at AIIMS Trauma Centre as a precaution given his advanced age and co-morbidities. Singh had attended the virtually convened Congress Working Committee meeting on Saturday where party leaders discussed the ongoing Covid crisis and suggestions to be made to the Centre for containing the pandemic. On Sunday, the former PM had also written a 3-page letter to Narendra Modi detailing suggestions from the Congress party on augmenting the vaccination drive and other measures to contain the infection that has been rapidly spreading across the country, inflicting over 2 lakh people daily for the past few days.
