Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who was admitted to a hospital due to high-grade fever, will be tested again for COVID-19 today, a senior official said.
The 55-year-old minister was brought to the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital (RGSSH) past midnight and was administered a test for novel coronavirus on Tuesday morning.
“He still has fever. The minister though tested negative for COVID-19 today, will again undergo the same tests after 24 hours of the first test,” the senior official confirmed.
Doctors at the hospital said his condition is “stable” and had been taken off oxygen supply.
Jain tweeted to inform that he was admitted to RGSSH, a dedicated COVID-19 facility under the Delhi government.
“Due to high grade fever and a sudden drop of my oxygen levels last night. I have been admitted to RGSSH. Will keep everyone updated,” he tweeted.
