Last Wednesday (April 21), the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Shashi Tharoor, reported via his official Twitter handle, that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
After waiting two days for a test appointment and another day & a half for the results, I finally have confirmation: I’m #Covid positive. Hoping to deal with it in a “positive” frame of mind, with rest, steam & plenty of fluids. My sister& 85 year old mother are in the same boat.
