Former Union minister and senior BJP leader Uma Bharti, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, 27 September, was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Rishikesh.

On 27 September, Bharti posted on her twitter that she is in quarantine at Vande Mataram Kunj located between Haridwar and Rishikesh in Uttarakhand.

On Sunday, Uma Bharti wrote on her twitter: "I want to bring to your notice, that on the last day of my mountain journey, I called up a coronavirus test team, following the request by the administration because I had mild fever for last three days. Despite following all legal prohibition for Covid-19 and social distancing in the Himalayas, I have turned out to be Corona positive," she tweeted late Saturday.

She said, "Right now I am at Vande Mataram Kunj located between Haridwar and Rishikesh, which is like my family. I will undergo a test again after four days and if the situation persists, I will take a decision in consultation with doctors."

Bharti also urged people, who came into her contact, to get themselves tested for coronavirus.

"All those who came into my contact...I appeal to them to get their corona tests done and take precautions," she said.
