On Friday, Senior Congress leader and party spokesperson Sanjay Jhaannouncement of him being tested positive for COVID-19.

"I have tested positive for Covid-19 . As I am asymptomatic I am in home quarantine for the next 10-12 days. Please don't underestimate transmission risks, we are all vulnerable. Do take care all," he said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, many politicians including a few from the Bhartiya Janata Party wished for the Congress leader's speedy recovery.

He is the third leader from the party to have tested positive for Covid-19.

Last month, Gujarat MLA Imran Khedawala ended up testing positive just hours after meeting Chief Minister Vijay Rupani; while the CM later tested negative for the virus, the MLA recovered later that month. The same month, senior Gujarat Congress leader Badruddin Shaikh succumbed to the infection.

Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus cases now stands at 1,18,447 in the country. The number of active COVID-19 cases stood at 66,330, while 48,533 people have recovered and one patient has migrated.
