NEW DELHI: Over two months after contracting Covid-19, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Saturday tested positive for the infection again and will remain in isolation. Earlier this week, her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also tested positive.

“Congress chief Smt. Sonia Gandhi has tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday. She will remain in isolation as per government protocol,” tweeted Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh on Saturday. Sonia had tested positive for Covid in early June as well.

Days after she had tested positive, she was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi on June 12. She was discharged on June 20. Dr Suranjit Chatterjee, senior consultant, internal medicine, said reinfection within a short span is unlikely but it can happen if the strain of the predominant virus changes.
