State Covid-19 task force chief, Dr Sanjay Oak, who was afflicted by Covid-19 for the second time, has been cured and discharged from hospital, here on Monday.
However, doctors have asked him to rest for the next 14 days. He said he would be active again and will soon join his duty once his quarantine period enda.
He had tested COVID-19 positive for the second time after he suffered breathlessness during a video-conference with experts on June 29. Oak had contracted the coronavirus disease last month and was initially admitted to Prince Aly Khan Hospital in the city.
He was undergoing treatment at Fortis Hospital in Mulund.
