New Delhi: Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain, who was hospitalised after suffering from high-grade fever and a sudden drop in oxygen level, tested negative for COVID-19 on Tuesday, senior officials said.

Doctors at the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital (RGSSH) said his condition is "stable".

However, he has been supplemented with oxygen supply, and his condition is being monitored.

Earlier in the day, the 55-year-old minister tweeted to inform that he was admitted to the RGSSH, a dedicated COVID-19 facility under the Delhi government.

"Due to high grade fever and a sudden drop of my oxygen levels last night I have been admitted to RGSSH. Will keep everyone updated," he tweeted.

He was later tested for COVID-19, hospital authorities said.

"He was brought to the hospital late night. A COVID test was done on him and he has tested negative," a senior official of the hospital said.
