Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and current PWD Minister Ashok Chavan, who tested positive for coronavirus on May 24, was discharged from the hospital in Mumbai on June 4 after full recovery.
Congress leader Chavan, an MLA from Bhokar constituency in Nanded district, was in Nanded when he tested positive for coronavirus. He was later shifted to a private hospital in Mumbai on May 25 for treatment. After being discharged, 61-year-old Chavan reached his home to a warm welcome from family members. The cabinet minister will remain quarantined at his home as per COVID-19 guidelines.
Chavan is the second cabinet minister in the Maha Vikas Aghadi government after Housing Minister Jitendra Awhad to have tested positive for COVID-19. Awhad, who contracted the virus in April, has too recovered from the virus.
