Two Covid patients from the city and one from Mohali were discharged from two city hospitals. While the two patients from the city were treated at the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, the Mohali case was being attended to at the Government Multi-Specialty Hospital in Sector 16.

A 22-year-old youth from Sector 30-B has recovered in just eight days. He had returned from Dubai on March 11 and developed symptoms after 10 days. He was admitted to the GMCH on March 25. The Sector 30 resident’s mother, who was also tested positive, is still in the hospital.

The second patient to be discharged today is the mother of the city’s first Covid patient, who had returned from the UK on March 15. However, the first Covid patient tested positive even after completing 14 days in isolation. She has been sampled again for Covid. Her brother, who was also positive, was also re-sampled at the GMCH. On Wednesday, the PGI had discharged a Sector 19 resident, a doctor in the UK, after the samples tested negative. The 26-year-old had also tested negative on the 14th day.

So far, three Covid patients in the city have recovered while 15 cases are still active in the UT hospitals.

District Epidemiologist Dr Harmandeep Kaur said a 42-year-old resident of Sector 69 was discharged from the GMSH, Sector 16, Chandigarh, today. He was admitted to the hospital on March 19 when his samples were found positive for Covid. He is the first Covid patient from the district to have recovered. “Amandeep was discharged after his two reports tested negative. The condition of all patients undergoing treatment is stable,” said Dr Harmandeep.
