Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital and Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital were among the facilities converted into dedicated Covid-19 hospitals soon after the cases began to rise.
Amid mounting concern over a new strain of the virus detected in the UK, the Delhi government on Tuesday had said people who have arrived here recently from that country, are being traced and tested.
According to Medical Director Dr Suresh Kumar of the LNJP Hospital, 10,145 patients have been discharged from the hospital after testing negative of the deadly virus.
A senior official at the city government-run LNJP Hospital, however, said the confusion happened due to the patient, Shrinwas Kumar, being a namesake of another patient, who later died.

The Fire Department said it received information about the blaze around 11 am.
Dr Kumar also noted that the cameras will help in resolving the issues faced by patients and address their concerns faster.
1,056 fresh cases take Delhi COVID-19 tally near 1.33 lakh mark; no death at LNJP hospital in last 24 hours
The 2,000-bed hospital's medical director attributed the feat to 'extensive ICU care, plasma bank facility, top heathcare facilities and dedication of doctors and other heathcare workers'.
In another positive trend, the first 12 days of July have largely reported more cases of people recovering daily from the coronavirus than the fresh ones added to Delhi's COVID-19 count.
The hospital has hired three expert counsellors who will encourage patients to donate plasma and tell them it is a safe process, according to the official.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday visited the facility to review the preparedness and also held a meeting with doctors.
The 52-year-old doctor served in the war against the pandemic at the government facility, and died of the infection in an ICU of a private hospital on June 28.
Sources at the Max Hospital said the doctor died in the ICU of Max Smart, a dedicated COVID-19 facility in Saket.
It will be the second state-run hospital in Delhi to get the facility after LNJP Hospital, where the facility was inaugurated by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday.
Two patients are scheduled for administering of the therapy on Tuesday and five other have been screened already, Medical Director of LNJP Hospital, Dr Suresh Kumar, said.
