New Delhi: Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Shaktikanta Das on Sunday said he has been tested positive for COVID-19 and will continue to work from isolation.

Currently, the RBI has full strength of four deputy governors BP Kanungo, MK Jain, MD Patra and M Rajeshwar Rao.

The RBI governor was quite active during the lockdown period and the "Unlock" period to keep the economy and financial market in good shape.

He used both conventional and unconventional monetary policy tools to support economic recovery hit by COVID-19 crisis.
