Chandigarh, Jan 12 (IANS) Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh revealed on Wednesday that he has tested positive for Covid-19.

"I have tested positive for #Covid with mild symptoms. Have isolated myself and request all those who came in contact with me to get themselves tested," Amarinder Singh tweeted.
