 Omar on Wednesday took his first dose of Covid-19 vaccine

Srinagar- Two days after receiving the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah Friday tested positive for the deadly virus.

"For a year I did my best to dodge this damn virus but it’s finally caught up with me. I tested positive for #COVIDー19 this afternoon. I’m completely asymptotic. Based on medical advice I’m self-isolating at home & monitoring my parameters like oxygen saturation levels etc," Omar tweeted.

His father Farooq Abdullah had tested positive for coronavirus last week and is now recuperating from the infection.

"I am very grateful to everyone reaching out to me here on Twitter to wish me well. I apologise for not replying individually. For the next few days I'm focusing on beating this virus & will be back here after the battle is won," Omar Abdullah added in his tweet.

Pertinently, Omar on Wednesday took his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) in Srinagar.
