If you or someone in your house has tested positive for Corona, there is no need to worry or panic. In this difficult moment, you are not alone. We are with you, and together we can help you to return to good health. This is why our doctors are currently advising patients with mild symptoms to home-isolate for 17 days. If your doctor has advised you to self-isolate, kindly follow the instructions given below strictly.

Before starting the process of home-isolation, please follow these critical instructions carefully

A separate well-ventilated room and a separate toilet should be available for Corona patient at your home. If not, please inform your doctor about this, we will make arrangements in “COVID Care Centre” for the patient.
A caregiver/attendant should be available 24×7 for the care of the patient.

If anybody in your house is above 55 years of age, is pregnant or has any severe medical condition like cancer, severe asthma, respiratory disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, renal disease etc please shift them to another house till the patient recovers. In such situations it is not safe to home quarantine a Corona patient in your house, as it can be dangerous for anyone with a serious health condition.

CM Sh. Arvind Kejriwal has appointed a team of health workers and doctors who will call the patient on a daily basis to monitor their health. Please make sure you attend all their calls and give them accurate information about the patient.
