Sumalatha, an independent MP from Mandya Lok Sabha constituency, tweeted she has tested positive and is currently under home isolation as there were only "very mild" symptoms.

"By the grace of God, My immunity levels are strong and I am confident that I will get through this soon with all your support," she said appealing to those who have come in contact with her to get tested immediately if they have any symptoms.
