Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has tested positive for Covid-19 and admitted to the trauma center of All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) in Delhi on Monday.

Singh was admitted to AIIMS in May last year as well after he complained of chest pain.

In 2009, the veteran Congress leader was operated for a redo bypass cardiac surgery by cardiovascular thoracic surgeon and vice-chairman of the Asian Heart Institute, Dr Ramakant Panda.

Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wished the former PM a “speedy recovery”. “Dear Dr. Manmohan Singh Ji, Wishing you a speedy recovery. India needs your guidance and advice in this difficult time,” he tweeted.

Senior leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor said, “Sorry to hear this. Wishing Dr ManMohan Singh a speedy & complete recovery. He has become the conscience-keeper of the nation in these challenging times. We all need him to be well.”
