The Khandapada MLA took to Twitter to share his health update and urged all those who had come in contact with him last week to consult doctors. He said his condition is stable.
ମୁଁ ଆଜି କରୋନା ପଜିଟିଭ ହେଇଥିବା କଥା ଜଣା ପଡ଼ିଛି । ମୁଁ ସୁସ୍ଥ ଅଛି । ଗତ ସପ୍ତାହରେ ମୋ ସଂସ୍ପର୍ଶରେ ଆସିଥିବା ବନ୍ଧୁମାନଙ୍କୁ ଡାକ୍ତରୀ ପରାମର୍ଶ ନେବାପାଇଁ ଅନୁରୋଧ କରୁଛି ।

Worthwhile to mention here that Nilagiri MLA Sukanata Nayak was the first legislator in the state to have contracted the disease.
Polasara MLA Srikant Sahu, Remuna MLA Sudhanshu Shekhar Parida and Salepur MLA Prasant Behera also tested positive for coronavirus.
