The two-year-old girl who had been admitted to AIIMS in a battered state two months ago,was on Friday shifted out of the ICU,after she was able to breathe on her own without ventilator support for three consecutive days. This was the first sign of hope since she was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition 45 days ago. Dr Deepak Aggarwal,the neurologist monitoring her condition,said,We shifted her to the ward today. She is doing fine. We have removed the plaster from her hands and she is moving her limbs. She is likely to be fit enough to be discharged in a few days.
