Even as the COVID-19 positive cases continue to rise in Nagpur, what comes as good news is the fact that 227 out of 373 patients (as of 3:30 pm on May 18) in the city have been discharged after recovery. While 102 patients have been discharged from GMCH, 125 patients have been discharged from IGGMCH.

The rate of recovery of the patients in the city has increased after the discharge policy was changed by the Union Health Ministry a week ago. As per the new policy, a patient can be discharged from the hospital (without conducting a COVID-19 test) after 10 days if the patient is asymptomatic.
