Deputy director H&FW, Dr. Kika Longkumer informed that the eight recovered patients were shifted to COVID Care Centre (CCC) Dimapur since they were asymptomatic and do not require further medical attention.

Informing this to media persons during the daily briefing at the state secretariat conference hall, Dr. Kika said the recovered patients were shifted to reduce congestion in the COVID hospitals which also consumes more resources.

Dr. Longkumer added that they have completed 14 days, yet discharge protocols will be followed before being discharged after which logistic arrangement will be made to send them to their places soon.

Dr. Longkumer shared that in COVID case, 97% will develop symptoms within 10-11 days but 99% develop symptoms within 14th day because of which it was important to keep the people in QCs for 14 days.

Dr. Longkumer said in the quarantine centres, the inmates were kept to prevent transmission of the disease by monitoring their health and also report the inmate through the apps. 

He also said those in home quarantine were being tracked through geo fencing tag.
