कोरोना के शुरूआती लक्षण आने पर मैंने टेस्ट करवाया व पहली जाँच नेगेटिव आने के बाद आज दूसरी जाँच पॉजिटिव आई है।— Arjun Ram Meghwal (@arjunrammeghwal) August 8, 2020
मेरी तबीयत ठीक है परन्तु चिकित्सकीय सलाह पर AIIMS में भर्ती हूँ। मेरा निवेदन है कि जो लोग गत कुछ दिनों में मेरे संपर्क में आयें हैं, कृपया अपने स्वास्थ्य का ध्यान रखे ।
Arjun Meghwal was in news a few days ago when he launched ‘Bhabhi Ji papad’, claiming that the food item will help drive away the novel coronavirus.
