President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Governor Banwarilal Purohit, who tested positive for COVID-19, and wished him speedy recovery.

“The President and the Prime Minister spoke to the Governor over phone and wished him a speedy recovery,” an official from the Raj Bhavan said.

Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami had on Sunday spoken to the Governor over phone and wished him good health.

The Governor is stable, the Raj Bhavan said on Monday evening. Doctors from the Kauvery Hospital carried out a health checkup and have found him stable, an official release stated. “They are monitoring his health 24X7,” it added.

Mr. Purohit is asymptomatic and clinically stable, a statement from the hospital had said earlier.

Since Mr. Purohit’s infection is mild, he has been advised home isolation.

In view of the pandemic, the Governor has decided not to host an ‘at-home’ reception at the Raj Bhavan, usually held on the occasion of the Independence Day.

At least 87 persons living on the Raj Bhavan campus, the official residence of the Governor, have tested positive for the infection in the past few days.
