All the patients are now completely healthy and asymptomatic. Their blood, CT scan, and other tests are normal. Their doctors have advised them to stay at home and quarantine themselves for seven days.

Parsadi Lal Meena, Health Minister said that the department was extremely alert and vigilant from the beginning of the new variant of the corona.

After the report of genome sequencing, the treatment of the infected was started by admitting the infected to RUHS.
