However, from the third week of February, we have started witnessing patients with trouble in breathing, brain fog, gastro issues and elevated HRCT score. So, things are getting bad again. So, we have to be careful,” said doctor Ajeet Singh, superintendent of RUHS. He added that patients with bilateral pneumonia and other complications are again seen. “We are seeing patients who are admitting to the hospital with trouble in breathing and high fever.
