Jha took to Twitter after he tested positive on Friday evening, asking people to take extra precautions and also undergo a Covid-19 test at the earliest.
“I went under home quarantine as soon as my Covid-19 report came positive. I have symptoms of this illness since Holi,” Jha tweeted.
मेरा कोरोना टेस्ट रिपोर्ट पॉजिटिव आया है।मैंने स्वयं को आइसोलेट कर लिया है। आप में से जो भी लोग गत कुछ दिनों में मेरे निकट संपर्क में आयें हैं, कृपया सावधानी बरतें और अपनी जांच करवाएं।
