Chaudhary (67) is the second SP leader to test coronavirus positive. Former MP Dharmendra Yadav had tested corona positive earlier this month and he has fully recovered now.
According to sources close to the leader, he had been suffering from fever since the past two days and had been admitted to Medanta hospital where his sample testing was done.
After the results showed him corona positive, the SP leader was shifted to the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) on Tuesday morning.
In 2018, Ram Govind Chaudhary had undergone a cardiac surgery in Medanta hospital in Gurugram.
