Union Home Minister Amit Shah has tested positive for coronavirus that has infected the country's more than 17 lakh population. Sources said he was admitted to Medanta hospital, located in Gurugram western Delhi, western Haryana. In a tweet, the minister said his health was "fine," but "on the advice of doctors" he was hospitalised. He also asked all those "who got in touch with me.

Sources said substantial contact tracing will be done and anyone who has come in contact with the minister will have to isolate themselves.

Mr Shah, 55, took part in Wednesday's cabinet meeting joined by all top ministers, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Minister of Defense Rajnath Singh, and Minister of Finance Nirmala Sitharaman. During the critical conference, where the National Education Policy was accepted, all safety requirements like social distancing were observed.

Although most of PM Modi's meetings are now held online, there are not digital cabinet meetings.

Today more than 17 lakh cases of coronavirus have been reported in the country-adding more than one lakh patients to the list in just two days. The pandemic has resulted in the death of an Uttar Pradesh official. Kamal Rani Varun, 62, died on Aug 3 at the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Lucknow.

54,735 cases of the disease have been reported over the last 24 hours, taking the total number of cases to 17,50,723, Health Ministry data showed.

The jump came when last week the country rolled out Unlock 3-the third step of lifting restrictions. Nevertheless, the government has yet to open places that see a huge crowd including schools and universities, cinema halls, swimming pools, pubs, and assembly halls. Last month many states declared lockdowns in various degrees as numbers spike.
