COVID has been wreaking havoc in the country so it is important to identify the type of covid that one is suffering from. 

Below are the two types of cases:

The asymptomatic cases are laboratory-confirmed not experiencing any symptoms and having oxygen saturation at room air of more than 94%. 

Clinically assigned mild cases are patients with upper respiratory tract symptoms (&/or fever) without shortness of breath and having oxygen saturation at room air of more than 94%.

Such patients should stay indoors at their residence for self-isolation also quarantining the family contacts. The patients suffering from Hypertension, Diabetes, Heart disease, Chronic lung/liver/ kidney disease, Cerebro-vascular disease, etc. shall only be allowed home isolation after proper evaluation by the treating medical officer.
