Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who has been diagnosed with dengue and had earlier tested positive for COVID-19, was administered plasma therapy at Max Hospital in Delhi's Saket, his office said on Friday, 25 September.

On Thursday, his office had said that his blood platelet count was falling. He was later shifted from the state-run LNJP Hospital to Max.

Sisodia, who had tested positive for the virus on 14 September, was hospitalised on Wednesday after he complained of fever and low oxygen levels.


In a tweet on 14 September, Sisodia had said, "After having a mild fever, got a corona test done today whose report has come out positive. I have isolated myself. Right now, there is no fever or any other problem. I am completely fine. With all your blessings, I will soon get completely healthy and return to work.”

The national capital of Delhi has reported more than 2,64,000 cases of coronavirus so far, with the death toll standing at 5,147.

Earlier, state Health Minister Satyendar Jain had tested positive for COVID-19 and had been admitted to the hospital, before recovering from the infection.
