New Delhi: Ace Indian sprinter Hima Das, who is making a comeback from a hamstring injury, on Wednesday revealed that she has tested positive for COVID-19 but is stable in isolation.
Das, 21, reported to the national camp at National Institute of Sport (NIS) in Patiala recently.
“I would like to inform everyone that I have been tested positive for Covid-19. I am stable and at the moment in isolation. I look forward to utilising this time to recover and come back stronger than before,” Das tweeted.
