He had added that after the result came positive he isolated himself. Sisodia had said that currently he doesn't have a fever or any other difficulties and is completely fine.
"After having a mild fever, the corona test was conducted today, whose report has come positive. I have kept myself in isolation. Right now there is no fever or any other problem, I am completely fine. Soon after getting all your blessings, I will return to work," he had tweeted.
