Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference (NC) President Farooq Abdullah tested positive for the coronavirus.
He tested positive for the virus weeks after getting the COVID 19 vaccination.
“My father has tested positive for COVID-19 and is showing some symptoms. I will be self-isolating along with other family members until we get ourselves tested. I request anyone who has come in to contact with us over the last few days to take all the mandated precautions,” tweeted Farooq’s son Omar Abdullah.
Omar Abdullah informed this on his official Twitter handle saying that he along with his family members will be self-isolating till they get tested.
Farooq had got his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at SKIMS Srinagar on March 2.
“Thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at SKIMS, Srinagar. Today my 85-year-old father and my mother had their first COVID jab. My father has a number of health issues including being on immunosuppressants for a kidney transplant. If he can get the vaccine, you should as well,” Omar Abdullah had tweeted then.
