BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who had been admitted to AIIMS after complaining of fatigue and body ache, 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 BJP leader, who had tested negative for coronavirus earlier this month, had been admitted to AIIMS in Delhi on August 18.
Shah, 55, had taken part in a cabinet meet two weeks ago just before he was tested positive for the highly infectious COVID-19. The meeting was attended by all top ministers, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. All safety norms, including social distancing, were followed at the crucial meet, where the National Education Policy was approved.
