The rise of coronavirus cases are at its peak in India. With the second wave, many people are finding it hard to escape this deadly virus and falling prey to it. The recent one to contract the virus is our former prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. After complaints of mild fever, the veteran Congress politician has been admitted to All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), Delhi. He has been admitted to the trauma centre of the hospital for now.
 
For those who don't know, Manmohan Singh had contracted the virus during the first wave as well and was admitted in the same hospital. However, due to his age and other reasons, this time he has been admitted for precautionary reasons. As soon as the news of him testing positive broke out, good wishes came pouring in from fellow politicians.
 
Rahul Gandhi tweeted, 'Dear Dr. Manmohan Singh Ji. Wishing you a speedy recovery. India needs your guidance and advice in this difficult time.' Priyanka Gandhi Vadra wrote. 'My prayers are with Manmohan Singh ji and his family today, and my deepest respect. May he fight this scourge with all his might and get well soon.'
