    Australian politician and federal treasurer

Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating with his family.

"Like thousands of Australians, I tested positive today to COVID-19," he tweeted on Friday night.

"I have the common symptoms and am isolating with my family.

"My thoughts are with all those who have COVID - this is a difficult time but we will get through this."

Responding to Mr Frydenberg's tweet Shadow Treasurer Jim Chalmers said he was sorry to hear of the positive test and he wished the treasurer well.

"All the best for a speedy recovery," Mr Chalmers said.

Defence Minister Peter Dutton tested positive for coronavirus in March last year and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce tested positive in December.

Friday was another record day of case numbers with more than 78,000 reported in Australia.
