Five security personnel of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. Last month, a deputy secretary in his office tested positive for the novel coronavirus, following which the chief minister underwent self-quarantine. However, his samples tested negative for the virus.
The security personnel who were tested COVID-19 positive had recently accompanied the Chief Minister on his visit to Kangra. Those who came in contact with these staff are asked to undergo COVID test and self-isolate themselves. CM Thakur is also expected to undergo test for the second time.
