Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her eight-year-old daughter have also tested positive for the coronavirus, a day after Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan revealed their diagnosis. Aishwarya and her young daughter have been isolated at home in Mumbai, Abhishek Bachchan tweeted. Jaya Bachchan has tested negative. Hours before Abhishek's announcement, a tweet posted and then deleted by Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope caused some confusion. A post from Abhishek on Sunday evening confirmed that his wife and daughter's test results were positive and that they had been quarantined at home - Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek are still in hospital, the actor said.

The Bachchan residence, Jalsa, has been sealed by the Brihanmumbai Corporation or BMC, as have the three other family bungalows. 30 staff members have been tested for the virus.

Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek tested positive on Saturday and are in Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital. Amitabh Bachchan tweeted: "I have tested COVID-19 positive... shifted to hospital... hospital informing authorities .. family and staff undergone tests, results awaited...All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested!"

Soon after, Abhishek Bachchan announced that he had the coronavirus as well. In a post shared today, he asked fans not to panic.

Amitabh Bachchan is "stable and has mild symptoms," hospital authorities said. He is in an isolation ward.
