Discharge Criteria for COVID-19 Patients From Isolation Ward.

Discharge Criteria for COVID-19 Patients From Isolation Ward. WHO updated the criteria for discharge from isolation as part of the clinical care pathway of a COVID-19 patient. These criteria apply to all COVID-19 cases regardless of isolation location or disease severity. For Symptomatic patients: 10 days after symptom onset, plus at least 3 additional days without symptoms (including without fever and without respiratory symptoms) For Asymptomatic cases: 10 days after positive test for SARS-CoV-2 For example, if a patient had symptoms for two days, then the patient could be released from isolation after 10 days + 3 = 13 days from date of symptom onset; for a patient with symptoms for 14 days, the patient can be discharged (14 days + 3 days =) 17 days after date of symptom onset; for a patient with symptoms for 30 days, the patient can be discharged (30+3=) 33 days after symptom onset).

A useful information to all curofians- considering that there is rapid rise in COVID-19 cases in india,and last 24 hours recording more than 26000 positive patients. We need to be more updated on this disease, which has taken the medical world by surprise- as we don't have past experience of this disease. Now , WHO admits that COVID- 19 is air- birne - although earlier it was denying it . In that context - it is informative post and we should clearly know the discharge criteria of COVID-19 disease
