Chandigarh, September 14
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar returned to Chandigarh today after recovery from Covid. He urged people to follow Covid guidelines like wearing masks and maintaining social distancing to stay safe.
Asserting that people need not fear the virus, he said they had to remain vigilant so that they did not get infected. Khattar tested positive for Covid on August 24, two days before the start of the monsoon session of the Assembly. He was taken to a Gurugram hospital for treatment.
A multi-disciplinary team of doctors from AIIMS in New Delhi and the PGIMS in Rohtak, besides Dr Virender Yadav, Gurugram Civil Surgeon, and Medanta’s Dr Sushila Kataria, had reviewed his condition, line of treatment and progress, a state government statement had said earlier.
Interacting with mediapersons in Gurugram today before leaving for Chandigarh, Khattar said he had recovered fully though doctors had advised monitoring of his health for the next 10 days.
“I want to thank all those who wished and prayed for my speedy recovery as well as the doctors who were involved in my treatment,” he said.
Khattar urged people to follow all guidelines issued by the government and other authorities in the wake of the pandemic.
He advised people, especially those at high risk, to avoid going out. Answering a question, he said he had kept himself busy in official work while recovering from the virus.
Asked about the source of his infection, Khattar said he could not say for sure from where he had contracted the infection. He said just before catching the virus, he had been attending many official meetings in Delhi.
One such meeting Khattar had attended days before he tested positive was with Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, who tested positive for Covid after the meeting.
