Most of the 30 coronavirus patients in Assam are recovering and they are likely to be discharged from hospitals from Wednesday in phased manner.
“Most patients, earlier infected by nCoV, are either stable or good. If everything remains fine, their discharge is likely to start from April 15,” said Assam health and family welfare minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said Monday.
He said that of the 3,209 swab samples collected, 3,070 were found negative.
“Of the 1,421 samples of Tablighi Jamaat meet participants, 29 tested positive and 1,358 negative. Test reports of 34 samples are awaited,” Sarma said.
Two more coronavirus cases – a 35-year-old man from Assam and a 33-year-old man from Nagaland — were reported in Assam on Monday.
The Minister said a person from Dhubri linked with the Tablighi Jamaat congregation at Nizamuddin Markaz in Delhi has been tested for coronavirus.
A man from Dimapur tested positive and was undergoing treatment at the GMCH, he said.
The man from Nagaland had travelled from Kolkata to Dimapur on March 24 and when he developed symptoms of COVID-19, he was shifted to GMCH on April 5.
