Home Isolation Rules For Mild, Asymptomatic Cases Revised

Health, World Comments Off 5

The centre has released revised guidelines for home isolation of mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 cases. Over the last two years, it has been seen globally as well as in India that a majority of cases of COVID-19 are either asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms. Such cases usually recover with minimal interventions and accordingly may be managed at home under proper medical guidance and monitoring, the Health Ministry said today.

Patients under home isolation can end isolation after at least seven days have passed from testing positive and if there is no fever for three days in a row. They will continue to wear masks. There is no need for re-testing after the home isolation period is over. Earlier, home isolation ended after 10 days from the onset of symptoms.
