The state government has come up with revised discharge policy guidelines, wherein asymptomatic patients can be discharged 10 days after testing positive for Covid-19.

A patient whose swab was taken on August 1, and tested positive, is to be discharged after 10 days, on August 11. There is no need for RT-PCR, CBNAAT, True-NAT test either before discharge. However, it is important that during this period, the patient shall remain free of symptoms.

At the time of discharge, the patient is advised home quarantine for 14 days. The criteria that needs to be met for discharge are no symptoms — no fever, oxygen saturation above 90%. 

There is no need for a test to be done before discharge.

  1. This is bizzare now next news will be, one need not be tested and should be directly admitted to covid center.
    These asha karyakartas and state govt are making joke of this pandemic and are blatantly stealing money from healthy people by showing fake positive reports.
    Let these guys visit my locality will teach them what we common citizens can do.
    From Giving fake positive reports to taking funds from centre as well as from patients this yedurappa govt has failed miserably.
    And yes centre is doing its job , its the state govt who’s focused on making scams after scams.
