He had also tested positive for COVID-19 at the time of his admission. He later developed a lung infection and kidney dysfunction.

“Shri Pranab Mukherjee is under intensive care and is being treated for lung infection and renal dysfunction. He continues to be in a deep coma and on ventilator support. He is haemodynamically stable,” the hospital said in a statement.
