New norms: Home-alone days to end a week early
Domestic Quarantine To End After 10 Days If No Fever For 3 Days; Number Of Recovered Patients To Go Up Significantly

New Delhi: A COVID-positive man in home isolation in southwest Delhi was in for a surprise on Friday. The surveillance team remotely monitoring his health for the past 11days informed him in the morning that he had successfully completed his home isolation. “I was confused because they had put me in home isolation for at least 17 days. I haven’t had a fever for the last five days,” he told TOI.

The man’s stay in home isolation was truncated after the Union health ministry changed the requirements from 17 days in domestic quarantine and no fever for 10 days after that to just 10 days in isolation and no fever for three days. With the Delhi government ordering the changed guidelines on Friday, the number of those deemed to have recovered from Covid-19 in home isolation is likely to increase in the city.
