KOLKATA: BJP MP from West Bengal’s Hooghly Locket Chatterjee has tested positive for Covid-19.

The MP tweeted, "I have tested positive for Covid-19 this morning, having mild fever and was in self-isolation for the past one week. I will keep everyone posted. All is well."

"Presently I am at home. The doctors will decide whether I will have to be hospitalised," she said.
