Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi has been discharged from the hospital. “He is perfectly alright in all tests. Now, he is taking rest at home,” Congress said.
Singh (87) was admitted to AIIMS on Sunday evening after he suffered a reaction to a new medication and developed fever.
However, he was stable and his condition had improved within a day. He also tested negative for COVID-19, hospital sources said on Monday. Sources close to him had stated on Monday that the senior Congress leader was “better” and did not have any fever during the day. He also underwent a series of tests. “His sample was taken for ruling out coronavirus infection and he has tested negative for it… His sample was taken for ruling out coronavirus infection,” PTI reported citing sources.
Singh, a senior leader of the opposition Congress, is currently a member of Rajya Sabha from Rajasthan.
He was the prime minister between 2004 and 2014.
In 2009, Singh underwent a successful coronary bypass surgery at the AIIMS. A number of leaders expressed concern over his health and wished him a speedy recovery.
