Taking to social networking site Twitter, government spokesman Rohit Kansal wrote: “More Positive Developments: 13 more COVID +Ve patients discharged from CD Hospital Srinagar after treatment/recovery. Good Job everyone.”

“A satisfactory moment … relieved 13 covid patients for home quarantine… not to lower our guard….stay home .. stay safe.. maintain social distance..obey advisories.Together v can overcome all challenges (sic),” Head of Department Chest Disease Hospital Srinagar, Dr Naveed Shah tweeted.

“Thanks to all my colleagues microbiologists supporting staff … this will motivate us to work even harder,” he tweeted.

On Monday, Dr Naveed Nazir Shah had said that Srinagar will soon move into the stage of discharging recovered COVID-19 patients and it was important to understand that these persons are now as normal as others.

He said while it is understandable that people are scared of this disease and one must take all precautions as required it is important to understand that those who had it and have now recovered are just as free from it as others who don’t have it.

Dr Naveed said the stigma that has been seen as having been attached to someone affected with this infection is uncalled-for and it is important to end it for all societies to live a normal life.

“There is no risk of transmission after a patient has recovered and become negative for the viral load — adding however that as a precaution the recovered person must remain under quarantine for the required period after discharge from the hospital,” Dr Naveed had said on Monday.
