BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has tested positive for COVID-19. He has been admitted to a city hospital as a precautionary measure, his brother confirmed on Tuesday.
According to Ganguly’s elder brother Snehasish, the former India captain and the current BCCI president is stable.
“Sourav is stable. He underwent angioplasty earlier this year. So as precautionary measure he has been admitted to Woodlands,” Snehasish told The Indian Express.
Ganguly is double vaccinated but has been travelling extensively as part of his job as BCCI President. He was admitted to a hospital twice earlier this year and underwent emergency angioplasty after having some cardiac issues.
“He received Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail therapy on the same night and is currently haemodynamically stable,” Dr Rupali Basu, MD & CEO of Woodlands Hospital, said in a statement.
“A medical board comprising Dr Saroj Mondal, Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Soutik Panda in consultation with Dr Devi Shetty and Dr Aftab Khan is keeping a close watch on his health status,” Basu added.
Snehasish Ganguly had also tested positive for COVID earlier this year.
