Union Home Minister Amit Shah was re-admitted to the AIIMS hospital in Delhi on Sunday night, just two weeks after getting discharged from the hospital for the post-coronavirus treatment. On August 2, the 55-year-old BJP leader was admitted to a private hospital, Medanta in Gurugram, after being tested for deadly COVID-19. On the eve of the independence day, the Home Minister said in a tweet that he is recovering well and would be in home isolation.
However, Shah complained of “fatigue and body ache” on August 18 and thus, was admitted to the AIIMS. After getting treatment for 13 days, the AIIMS doctors declared Shah fully “recovered” for his discharge on August 31.
On August 30, the AIIMS had released a statement on the health status of the Home Minister, saying: “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.”
According to media reports, Shah complained of breathlessness last night and at around 11 PM, he was admitted to the India’s top hospital once again.
On Sunday, India’s single-day count of fresh coronavirus cases was on the brink of one lakh. As many as 97,570 new patients of COVID-19 were recorded in last 24 hours, taking the overall tally to 46,59,984.
