Union Minister for AYUSH Shripad Naik’s oxygen saturation has dropped after testing positive for coronavirus on August 12, informed Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday. The minister is presently admitted to Manipal Hospital.
Sawant informed the media that a team of AIIMS doctors arriving from Delhi would decide on whether the AYUSH Minister needs to be shifted to the national capital for further treatment.
Initially, Naik stated that he was asymptomatic and advised the people who came in contact with him in the last few days to get themselves tested for COVID-19.
Naik’s ministerial colleagues Amit Shah, Dharmendra Pradhan, Kailash Choudhary, Arjun Ram Meghwal, and Gajendra Shekhawat were also diagnosed with COVID-19.
