Harichandan, 87, was rushed to a private hospital in Hyderabad today after falling sick. He has been diagnosed with Covid-19, family sources said.
His wife Suprava Harichandan and son Prithvi Raj Harichandan accompanied him to the hospital.
The Governor, who had returned from Delhi two days ago, was reportedly suffering from cold and cough.
