Amit Shah rushed to AIIMS again for ‘post-Covid care’ after he felt ‘uneasy’

Amit Shah had earlier tested positive for Covid on 2 August and was taken to Medanta in Gurugram. He was later admitted to AIIMS for two weeks for post-Covid care.

New Delhi: Home Minister Amit Shah was admitted to hospital late Saturday for a third time in just over a month. He was taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the national capital for “post-Covid care” less than two weeks after he was discharged from there.

Sources in the government told ThePrint Shah yet again felt “uneasy” and had “difficulties in breathing”, following which he was rushed to the medical facility for “post-Covid care”.

He was admitted at the Cardio Neuro tower in AIIMS around 11 pm, said the sources.

Shah had initially tested positive for Covid on 2 August and was admitted to Medanta Hospital in Gurugram for 12 days.

Three days after he was discharged, he complained of “uneasiness”, “fatigue” and “body ache” following which he was taken to AIIMS on 17 August. He was discharged from the hospital on 31 August, after which he resumed work from his residence.

On Saturday, despite being under the watch of specialists, Shah was again taken to AIIMS for “better care”, the sources said.

Neither AIIMS nor the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has made an official statement on this. This report will be updated once an official statement is released.

ThePrint tried to reach Amit Shah’s office and the MHA via text messages for a comment but there was no response.

According to a source, Shah was taken to the hospital again as his family wanted to minimise any risk to his health.

When Shah was admitted to AIIMS last month, it was his family that suggested that he quarantined at the hospital under the watch of doctors for some more time.

The source said that since Shah was discharged earlier and had felt uneasy after he returned home, the family did not want to take any risk. The senior BJP leader suffers from diabetes — a Covid comorbidity.

According to a second source, Shah tested negative for the novel coronavirus twice in one week when he was admitted to AIIMS last month.

Earlier, sources had told ThePrint that Shah was just quarantining himself at the hospital and was not on oxygen support. He had been looking at files, signing papers and sending them back from the hospital itself, sources had confirmed.
