The Chief Minister mentioned to the PM that two other members of his family were also infected, and the PM suggested that Bommai get suitable medical treatment. The Chief Minister also provided details about the Covid situation in the state to the Prime Minister.

“I am holding a virtual meeting right now in Bengaluru as a precursor to the virtual meeting you (Modi) have called on January 13. Necessary measures have been taken in the state to control Covid.
