Minister of State Arjun Ram Meghwal said that he has tested positive for coronavirus in a second screening, after testing negative the first time even as he showed initial symptoms.
Meghwal had last month endorsed a papad brand called ‘Bhabhi ji papad’ and said that it helps develop antibodies to fight against the virus. His video caused a storm on social media, with people criticizing the unscientific claims.
