Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Saturday tested positive for coronavirus and has been hospitalised at a hospital in Ambala. Mr. Vij confirmed about his being tested for COVID-19 on Twitter. This comes 15 days after he was administered a trial dose of COVID-19 vaccine Covaxin. "I have been tested Corona positive. I am admitted in Civil Hospital Ambala Cantt. All those who have come in close contact to me are advised to get themselves tested for corona," Anil Vij wrote on Twitter.
This comes days after Vij was administered a dose of Covaxin at a hospital in Ambala, as part of its third phase trial. On November 20, Vij had offered to be the first volunteer for the third phase trial of Covaxin, which started in the state.
Covaxin is being developed indigenously by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Last month, the vaccine maker said it had successfully completed interim analysis of Phase 1 and 2 trials and is initiating Phase 3 trials.
Vij is a senior leader of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and is a legislator from Ambala Cantt assembly constituency.
