Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain recovers from COVID-19


Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who had been undergoing treatment for COVID-19 in a private hospital for over a week, has been cured of the deadly infection and will be discharged on Friday. The AAP leader was given plasma therapy last week after he developed pneumonia and had breathing trouble.

“Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain tests negative for COVID-19, to be discharged from hospital today,” the Office of Delhi Health Minister was quoted as saying by a news agency.

Jain had tested positive for the highly contagious infection last week, a day after he was admitted to Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital (RGSSH) in the national capital after running a high-grade fever and suffering a sudden drop in oxygen levels. He had first tested negative for the virus. His second test, however, came positive.
