GOA: Ayush minister Shripad Naik’s health condition improved and a team of doctors from All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Armed Forces Command Hospital, who examined him, decided to continue his treatment in Goa.
“His (Naik’s) health is stable and there is no need to shift him to AIIMS in Delhi,” chief minister Pramod Sawant said. Naik, who is also the junior defence minister, has been undergoing treatment at a private hospital after he tested positive for Covid-19 on August 12.
“His oxygen saturation level is satisfactory. The team of expert doctors have told us that Naik will take at least three weeks to recover (from his lung infection),” Goa Medical College and Hospital dean S M Bandekar told TOI after the Delhi doctors had examined Naik.
