Union Home Minister Amit Shah who had been admitted to Delhi’s premier All India Institutes of Medical Sciences or AIIMS for “post-covid care” has recovered and will be released soon, the hospital said in a statement on Saturday.
“Amit Shah, Union Home Minister, is admitted at AIIMS, New Delhi for post-COVID care. He has recovered and is likely to be discharged in a short time,” the AIIMS said in a statement.
The 55-year-old BJP leader, who had tested negative for coronavirus earlier this month, had been admitted to AIIMS in Delhi on August 18. The Home Minister had been “complaining of fatigue and body ache for last three-four days”, the hospital said.
Mr Shah was taken to private hospital Medanta in Gurgaon early this month after testing positive. On August 14, he had tweeted that he would be in home isolation for a few more days on the advice of his doctors. A day later he was seen taking part in Independence Day celebrations and raising the national flag at his official residence.
