"I am going to do my COVID tests as I got to know that Mr. Athawale has tested positive. I was with him yesterday so I'll definitely be doing a test and will update. For now, I'll be quarantining till I do the test and get my reports. I don't have any symptoms," Ghosh told PTI.

Earlier, Athawale revealed his COVID-19 diagnosis in a post on Twitter.

The union minister has been admitted to a private hospital in south Mumbai.

In February, a video of Athawale, along with a Chinese diplomat and Buddhist monks chanting "Go corona, go corona" at a prayer meeting went viral on social media.

The video was reportedly shot at the Gateway of India here on February 20 during a prayer session to stop the spread of coronavirus in China.
