Srinagar: Former Chief Minister (CM) and National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah has tested negative for COVID-19 after twice testing positive.
However, his son and former CM and vice president of NC Omar will continue to remain under self isolation because of contradictory results of his COVID tests.
Omar informed this evening that his father Abdullah finally tested negative for COVID-19.
Abdullah had tested positive on March 30 and was later shifted to S K Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS). However, he was discharged from the hospital despite testing COVID positive.
Omar on April 9 had tested positive for the virus. However, his two test reports today were contradictory as one was positive and another was negative so he decided to remain in self isolation for next one week.
Taking to micro blogging site Twitter Omar said, “It’s a big relief for all of us at home that my father finally tested negative for COVID-19. In my case I’ve had two contradictory results with one test coming back negative & another positive. To be on the same side I’ll continue to self-isolate & will test again next week”.
