Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who got discharged from AIIMS nearly a fortnight ago after post-COVID-19 care, was readmitted to the hospital last night after he complained of breathlessness. On August 2, Amit Shah tweeted that he got tested positive. He received treatment at Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon and got discharged after he tested negative.
Shah was re-admitted to AIIMS in New Delhi for post-COVID care, on August 18 after he complained of “fatigue and body ache” for the second time and he left the hospital after 13 days on August 31 after the doctors said the house Minister had “recovered”. He has recovered and is probably going to be discharged during a short time,” an AIIMS official said in a statement on August 30. He has been experiencing breathing issues post his recovery from Covid-19. “It has been thought best he stays within the hospital where he is often constantly monitored,” the official added. He was admitted to the Cardio Neuro tower of AIIMS yesterday around 11 pm for the third time in over a month.
