13 > 14 > 13 > 9 > 10 > 11 > 15 > 16 > 12 > 8 > 7 > 6 > 5 > 1 > 2 > 3 > 4
The solution is that the person will enter room no. 14 and then will come back to 13. He then goes to 9 from 13, then towards 10, then to 15, 16, 12, and from 12 he goes to 8, 7, 6 and 5. From room 5 he enters 1, 2, 3 and finally exits from room 4. Thus not repeating any room twice. According to the question, it seems like the condition is restricted to other rooms but he can visit his own room no. 13 again, as he is already recovered. Take a look at the image to help you through the answer.
