Rep. Ahn Gyu-back of the ruling Democratic Party tested positive for the coronavirus Thursday, his office said.

He is the second sitting legislator to be diagnosed with COVID-19 after Rep. Lee Gae-ho of the same party, who tested positive in April.

Ahn's office said the four-term lawmaker came into contact with a local party official, who was infected with the coronavirus, during an event on Sunday.

His aides went into self-isolation, it said. (Yonhap)
