Former Rajasthan minister Ashok Gehlot on Sunday tested positive for swine flu and urged people to take timely treatment.
“I have been tested positive for swine flu. I took the treatment timely and now my condition improves,” he tweeted.
Gehlot had gone for a test after he complained of fever, cough and cold on getting back from Delhi where he campaigned for Congress candidates on January 30, the personal secretary said.
Rajasthan has witnessed 28 deaths due to H1N1 virus in the New Year, prompting the state government to direct senior medical officers from the medical directorate to go to various districts for effective monitoring of cases of swine flu.
