AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria stated that in most of the rare and asymptomatic Covid-19 cases, the virus dies after the 7th or the 8th day of infection. As of now, it can't be transmitted to another person, he said. But the dead virus, or the particles of the dead virus, can be picked up by the RT-PCR test and a positive report still may come, when a person has become recovered from covid-19. 

"It is scientifically proved that the virus in mild cases dies after six or seven days," Dr Guleria said. In its new guidelines for Covid treatment under home isolation, the Centre has said Covid-19 patients have to remain in isolation for 10 days. After this period is over, the isolation period can be ended when there is no fever for three continuous days.

Confirmning that 85 percent of people will recover at home, the ministry emphasised that there is no need to panic about Remdesivir injection or Oxygen.

The Union health ministry addressed three trials towards Covid-19 and used terms like 'corona ka rona' to hammer home the point

1) Many people still think corona is a scam and there is a life beyond        corona. 

2) Then there are people who are thinking they will surely die because they came in contact with an infected person. They also think they need to stock Remdesivir injection and oxygen cylinder in case they test positive.

3) "Then there are people who are aware and alert. But we need the support of everyone, both the fearful and the naysayers to manage the situation as the virus has not gone into fatigue, even if we have," health ministry joint secretary Lav Agarwal said in his statement.
