Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia has been discharged from Max hospital on Tuesday after he tested negative for coronavirus. Doctors have advised him to take rest for a week, Office of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister has informed.

Manish Sisodia was admitted to hospital due to the coronavirus infection and was also diagnosed with dengue on Thursday following which his condition took a turn for the worse.

Sisodia was moved to the private Max Hospital in Saket from the Delhi government-run LNJP Hospital in the evening, considering his "falling" blood platelet count and low oxygen level, they said. He was admitted to Max Hospital ICU.

They said the deputy CM's platelet count was around one lakh in the evening as against the normal rage of 1.5 - 4.5 lakh per microliter of blood. Sisodia was perhaps the first prominent personality in Delhi to have contracted a "double infection" of the novel coronavirus and dengue.

He is the second minister in the Arvind Kejriwal government to contract COVID-19 infection after Health Minister Satyendar Jain. The health minister had tested positive for COVID-19 in June and was hospitalised. He was later administered plasma therapy.
