Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was discharged from Bhopal's Chirayu Hospital on Friday, 5 August, after recovering from COVID-19.

The hospital has advised him to isolate himself at home and self-monitor his health for seven more days. Chouhan had tested positive for the virus on 25 July.

After being discharged, the BJP Chief Minister spoke about the foundation-stone laying ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya which is also being conducted on 5 August.

"PM will lay the foundation stone of Ram Temple today in Ayodhya. The 'mahayagya' which started 500 years ago, is culminating today. The willpower & resolve shown by PM Narendra Modi has today made him the tallest leader of India in the last 500 years", Chouhan said.

Earlier Chauhan, in a series of tweets, had announced that he had contracted the virus and requested those who had come in contact with him to self-isolate.

"I am following all COVID guidelines,” Chouhan had tweeted. “I will quarantine myself according to the doctor's advice. I appeal to the people of my state to be careful, just a little carelessness invites coronavirus," he had said.
