Just days after Home Minister Amit Shah was discharged from Medanta Hospital in Gurugram on August 14 after testing negative for COVID-19, he has been shifted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for post-COVID care. “Amit Shah has been complaining of fatigue and body aches for the last three-four days. He has tested negative for COVID-19. He has been admitted to AIIMS for COVID care. He is comfortable and is continuing his work from the hospital,” said AIIMS media and protocol division Chairperson Dr. Aarti Vij in a statement.
The minister thanked all his well-wishers after being discharged from the hospital.
“Today my corona test report has come negative. I thank God and at the moment I express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have blessed me and my family by wishing me well. Will stay in home isolation for a few more days on the advice of doctors,” said Amit Shah.
He also thanked all the physicians and paramedical staff of Medanta Hospital who were with him during his combat against corona virus.
However, according to the latest inputs from AIIMS Shah is perfectly fine and is working from the hospital.
