Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah, who recently tested positive for Covid-19, was hospitalised for better monitoring, his son Omar Abdullah tweeted on Saturday.
Omar Abdullah said Farooq Abdullah has been admitted to the hospital in Srinagar based on the advice of doctors “to enable them to better monitor” him.
“Our family remains grateful to everyone for their messages of support and their prayers,” he added.
The 85-year-old NC president tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. He was kept in home-isolation initially, but doctors on Saturday decided to shift him to a hospital for better medical care.
Several leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, wished him a speedy recovery after news of his testing positive for the disease came to light.
