From his hospital bed, a member of Maharashtra’s Covid-19 task force has penned down his own experience of treatment protocols. He is being treated for the novel coronavirus himself.  The doctor has suggested longer hospitalisation and administration of life-saving medicines to patients at an early stage.  According to his note, Covid-19 is a disease for 28 days and not 14 days as is being perceived. Discharge of patients from the hospital on Day-10 should be discouraged.

“I had a relapse on Day-14 in spite of taking Remdesivir”.
