The 55-year-old woman will remain in home isolation for seven days and will be discharged after seven days after re-testing her samples.

“Samples of the patient have been sent for genome sequencing to AIIMS, Bhopal to learn about the strain of virus prevalent in the city,” she added. As per health department records, over 2.12 lakh patients were found positive in Indore and over 1,472 had died since the outbreak of the disease.
