Para-archer Ankit shifted to the Bhagwan Dass Hospital in Sonepat to ensure proper treatment.

Sonepat: Para-archer Ankit was on Wednesday hospitalised after testing positive for COVID-19 during a national camp at the Sports Authority of India’s Northern Regional Centre here. The national camp for the para-archers began with eight athletes on October 5. “To ensure proper treatment and close monitoring of his vitals, he was shifted to the Bhagwan Dass Hospital in Sonepat on Wednesday," SAI said in a statement.

All campers had reported to the after centre submitting negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test reports. “As per the Standard Operating Procedure set up for the camp, samples of all campers were taken on October 12th for re-testing where Ankit’s report was found to be positive," SAI said. “He was immediately shifted to the isolation ward created above the medical centre at the SAI NRC Sonepat, before being moved to the hospital."
