In a self-made video, the Congress leader informed that he is healthy and undergoing medical treatment at Chirayu Hospital.
"I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am healthy for now and undergoing medical treatment at Chirayu Hospital. I appeal to all who met me to get tested and quarantine themselves," he said.
Earlier on July 23, PC Sharma had alleged that coronavirus is spreading in the state due to rallies and meetings conducted by the BJP while attacking Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led government over its inept handling of COVID-19 crisis.
"The condition of the state is worrisome and unfortunate. Three months of lockdown, then unlock period, Saturday-Sunday lockdown and now lockdown has been imposed for 10 days. The government has failed in handling coronavirus. There are no beds available in hospitals for COVID patients," Sharma said.
Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan became the first Chief Minister in India to test positive for the virus.
