Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis today said that he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and had gone into isolation.
"I have been working every single day since the lockdown but now it seems that God wants me to stop for a while and take a break! I have tested #COVID19 positive and in isolation," he said on Twitter.
Fadnavis, 50, who is the Leader of the Opposition in the Maharashtra Legislative Assemby, said he was taking medication and treatment as per the advice of the doctors.
