Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has recovered from deadly novel Coronavirus after his results for COVID-19 came negative. Jain will be discharged from hospital today.

Jain was tested twice last week after he developed symptoms of coronavirus, including high fever and breathing difficulty. He tested positive the second time on Wednesday last week.

The 55-year-old leader's health had deteriorated after he developed pneumonia during the treatment for COVID-19 at the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality hospital.

He was then shifted to the Max hospital and administered plasma therapy. 

Jain's health condition improved after receiving the plasma therapy, doctors treating him in the city''s Max hospital had said on Saturday.

AAP leader Atishi Marlena, Delhi government advisor Abhinandita Mathur and AAP media panelist Akshay Marathe have also tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently in quarantine.

On June 9, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had tested for the novel coronavirus after he complained of mild fever and sore throat. His test report, however, came out to be negative.
