New Delhi: Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has tested negative for COVID-19 and is expected to be discharged from hospital on Friday, sources said.

The 55-year-old minister was shifted to the ICU of Max Hospital, Saket, on June 19 after his condition worsened.

“He has tested negative for COVID-19 and is expected to be discharged shortly,” a source said.
