Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is making good recovery from a respiratory infection but moved from a private hospital to an isolation facility at AAIMS today to avoid any recurrence.

Jaitley, 61, who was hospitalised a few days ago after undergoing a planned diabetes management surgery on September 2, is expected to be discharged from AIIMS in a few days after which he will resume his official work.

"Jaitley has recovered satisfactorily from respiratory infection. He has been advised further rest in complete isolation to avoid any reccurence of infection, for which he would now be lodged at a special isolation facility which exists at AIIMS," official sources said here.

He was admitted over a week ago to a city hospital for post-surgery check-up.
