He was brought to the hospital late on Monday night.

'We have done a Covid test on him and results are awaited by evening,' a source told PTI.

Since his oxygen level is low, he is being kept under observation, the source said.

Taking to Twitter, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal hoped that Jain recovers soon.

'Without worrying about your health, you were dedicated in service of people round-the-clock. Please take care and get well soon,' he said in a tweet in Hindi.
