The Central government on April 27 allowed the option of home-isolation for COVID-19 patients who have very mild or no symptoms. Hours after the decision, the health ministry issued an advisory. In the advisory, the government mentioned the condition under which he or she can be eligible for self-isolation. Home-isolation will be allowed if the patient has a requisite facility at their house. Family contacts of the patient should also have a quarantine facility, and caretaker should be available all the time. West Bengal government on Monday said the primary and secondary contacts of Covid-19 patients may now quarantine themselves at home if they have space, instead of going to institutional quarantine facilities. The WB government said infected patients, must be brought to hospitals, unlike what Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee suggested earlier in the day. The number of coronavirus cases in India has reached 29,435 with 934 deaths.
