Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has tested negative for coronavirus on Sunday, a week after he tested positive for the same and was admitted to an Ahmedabad hospital, reported PTI. The 64-year-old has also been discharged from the hospital.

According to a statement issued by the Chief Minister's Office on Sunday, Rupani has "tested negative for COVID-19 in the RT-PCR test done today".
