SRINAGAR: Peoples Conference leader Sajad Lone announced that his wife, Asma Lone, has recovered from Covid-19 after staying admitted at the Holy Family Hospital Delhi. He used Twitter to make the announcement.
Night and day has lost its meaning for these COVID warriors at the Holy Family Hospital. Every moment presents a new challenge and every moment they rise up to the challenge.

“MY kids are in Delhi and their mother had come to see them when she contracted the infection,” Lone told Kashmir Life from Delhi. “But the doctors were extremely great and they did whatever it required to help her come out of it,” Lone said they are in the process of shifting to their Delhi residence, post Covid-19 negative test that has already come.
