CHENNAI: A day after Nagappattinam MP from CPI M Selvarasu tested COVID-19 positive, another Lok Sabha MP Karti P Chidambaram, who represents Sivaganga constituency, has been tested positive for the virus on Monday.

"I have just tested positive for #Covid. My symptoms are mild and as per medical advice I am under home quarantine. I would urge all those who have recently been in contact with me to follow medical protocol," the Congress leader tweeted.
