The patient was asymptotic and cooperative throughout his stay at the CCC, informed Dr Ista Pulu.
“The fight against Covid-19 will be long,” Namchoom said, and reaffirmed that “the government machinery is working at its level best to keep the disease at bay and ensure the safety and security of the public.”
The DC said that any complaints or shortages in Covid-19 management should be brought to the notice of the authorities directly, and that all should acknowledge the hard work of the frontline workers to boost their morale.
The lone Covid-19 patient in West Siang district has also recovered and was discharged from the CCC in Aalo after the results of the test reports came out negative twice consecutively.
The patient had been admitted to the CCC on 4 June.
West Siang DC Moki Loyi advised the patient to observe home quarantine for 14 days and maintain social distancing and other health advisories.
