The Delhi resident was treated in Safdarjung hospital for the last two weeks. He praised the facilities for doing all the hard work to treat the COVID-19 victims.

“There is no need to be scared. It is just like normal flu. If a healthy person reaches the doctor, our health system is well-equipped, one of the best in the world. The isolation ward is not like a two-by-two cell without sunlight,” he spoke to NDTV.

Nothing to panic he said


The businessman was among seven positive cases of coronavirus reported in the city including a patient who died. He and one more patient were discharged from the hospital on Sunday for showing improvements in health. For now, they have been advised to stay at home for another 14 days and have been asked to visit the doctors after a period.

“I returned from Europe on February 25 and I had a fever the next day. I went to a doctor who told me it was a throat infection. He gave me medicine for three days. I recovered on 28th but I again had a fever on 29th so I went to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital. On March 1st I tested positive,” he said.

“Honestly, it was difficult only till the time they had not told me I was positive. But when a team of doctors came to see me at Safdarjung the next day where I had been shifted, they made me so comfortable saying ‘it is curable, you are a healthy person and it is just cold and cough and it would just go. It just takes a little more time than the usual cold and cough’,” he said.


“I am not a doctor but it was a little different than the usual cold and cough. I was at an isolation ward at Safdarjung that the government of India has created for this. The facilities were very good, it was among the best I have seen, even including private hospitals. I had a private room with a bathroom,” he said.
