This is the second time that the 70-year-old leader has been infected with the virus. Recently his son Vaibhav Gehlot has also been tested positive for Covid. The chief minister urged people to follow all health protocols, in a series of tweets.

“According to the doctors, one of the reasons for the problem related to the artery blockage I had in August, 2021 is also the post-Covid problems. Therefore, taking Omicron too seriously, follow the Covid protocol and get both doses of the vaccine,” Gehlot said.

He said that post-Covid problems can include asthma, frequent headaches, lung diseases, kidney problems and even heart disease. He also warned about the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. “There is a belief among the general public that the Omicron variant of Corona is not fatal, so people are being careless. Experts are of the opinion that post-Covid problems after recovery from Omicron can be as severe as the earlier variants,” he said.
