Home Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali has been admitted in Appolo hospital last night after he was tested positive for coronavirus.
According to the information available, his personal staff, gunmen and his family are also said to be undergoing covid tests as a precautionary measure. It is also said that 3 other ministers in the KCR cabinet said to have been tested positive and are undergoing treatment discreetly as most of them have been working from home since few days due to the sudden spike in the number positive cases.
The development has made the government thinking of reimposing lockdown in the GHMC area to contain the spread of the virus further. Though both state and central governments maintain that there is no community spread in the country, they appeal to the people not get panic quoting the high recovery rate and the low number of deaths.
