New Delhi: Congress leader and party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi has home quarantined himself after testing positive for COVID-19, sources close to him said on Friday.

While he has mild symptoms like fever, the sources said, his wife has also tested positive for the virus and has isolated herself at home as per the government guidelines.

After Singhvi tested positive, his son and other family members and staff are also being tested for the virus.

Singhvi is the second Congress leader after Sanjay Jha to test positive for COVID-19. Jha has since recovered in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Friday tested negative for COVID-19 and will be discharged from the hospital.

The 55-year-old had tested positive on June 17 after developing breathlessness, following which he was shifted to Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality hospital. He was then shifted to Max Hospital, administered plasma therapy and kept on oxygen support in an ICU ward.

On June 9, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also tested for coronavirus after he complained of mild fever and sore throat. His test report, however, came out to be negative.

AAP leader Atishi Marlena, Delhi government advisor Abhinandita Mathur and AAP media panelist Akshay Marathe have also tested positive for Covid-19 and are currently in quarantine.
