Chhagan Bhujbal is among the several ministers and leaders in Maharashtra who have lately tested positive for coronavirus as the state witnesses a spike in the daily Covid-19 cases. Earlier this month, Maharashtra ministers Anil Deshmukh, Rajendra Shingne, Jayant Patil, Rajesh Tope, Satej Patil and Bachchu Kadu tested positive for the disease. Last year, over 12 state ministers, including Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, contracted the viral infection. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray announced on Sunday that in view of the rising coronavirus cases, all political, religious and social gatherings will be prohibited in the state from Monday.
