Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha has tested positive for COVID-19 and has quarantined himself at home.

The 71-year-old leader shared the information on Twitter and asked those who came in contact with him in the recent past to follow protocols on self-quarantine and testing.

"I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am in home quarantine. Those who came in contact with me in the last few days may kindly follow the protocol," he said in a tweet.

Earlier senior leaders Ahmed Patel, Motilal Vora and Abhishek Singhvi had tested positive for COVID-19.

While Singhvi has recovered, other leaders are still under treatment.
