Senior Congress leader and national spokesperson Sanjay Jha has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

In a post on Twitter, Jha said that he has tested positive for COVID-19. He said that he was asymptomatic and hence he is under home quarantine for the next 10 to 12 days.

Asymptomatic patients are those who contract the virus but do not exhibit any symptoms. Yet, they are carriers of the virus.
