India's main opposition Congress party's chief Sonia Gandhi has contracted Covid for the second time in two months.
The 75-year-old widow of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi is currently in home isolation in the national capital, a senior Congress leader tweeted on Saturday.
"Congress President Sonia Gandhi tested positive for Covid-19 today. She will remain in isolation as per government protocol," Jairam Ramesh, a former federal minister, wrote.
In June this year too, Gandhi tested positive for coronavirus and had to be admitted to a hospital for treatment.
Gandhi's son Rahul and daughter Priyanka had earlier tested positive for Covid-19.
Gandhi's health has been a subject of rumours in the Indian media. More than a decade ago, she underwent a surgery at a hospital in the US for an undisclosed medical condition.
