MUMBAI: Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has been discharged from a hospital after recovering from COVID-19, authorities said.
Koshyari, 80, was admitted to the HN Reliance Foundation hospital, in south Mumbai on Wednesday after testing positive for the infection.
A statement issued by the Raj Bhavan said the governor returned to his official residence after remaining hospitalised for four days.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the governor had said, "I have tested positive for COVID-19. There are only mild symptoms. However, I have been admitted to a hospital as a precautionary measure." A day before that, Shiv Sena's cabinet minister Eknath Shinde had launched a rebellion against his own party, setting off hectic political activities in the state.
The majority of the Sena legislators have supported Shinde and joined him in Guwahati, where all of them are currently camping.
Their rebellion has pushed the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government headed by Sena president Uddhav Thackeray to the brink of collapse. NCP and Congress are also part of the ruling combine.
The Maharashtra Governor further added, "I particularly thank Dr Samrat Shah for proper diagnosis and treatment and Dr Shahank Joshi and Dr Samir Pagad for their consultation from time to time.I thank all the nurses, officers, staff, and the entire family of the HN Reliance Hospital for looking after me so well." Later in the day, Bhagat Singh Koshyari reached the Raj Bhavan, reports Republic World.
