J&K National Conference (JKNC) vice president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah has tested positive for COVID-19. 

Omar on Friday took to Twitter to announce about him being infected by the virus.

"For a year I did my best to dodge this damn virus but it's finally caught up with me. I tested positive for #COVIDー19 this afternoon. I'm completely asymptotic. Based on medical advice I'm self-isolating at home & monitoring my parameters like oxygen saturation levels etc," he tweeted.

Pertinently, the former chief minister had on Wednesday taken the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) in Srinagar.

Omar's father and president of JKNC Farooq Abdullah had also tested positive last week and was discharged from SKIMS on Wednesday.
