National Conference (NC) leaders Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah went into self-quarantine after one of their secondary contacts tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The announcement was made on Twitter by former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, saying doctors had advised the father-son duo to self-isolate for a week, before undergoing a precautionary coronavirus test.
In a tweet, Omar Abdullah said: “My father & I have been in contact with a person who was in turn staying with a relative who tested COVID positive. Based on medical advice, we will be self-isolating for a week before getting a precautionary COVID test.”
