Former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly was taken to a hospital after being tested positive for Covid-19 last night. He was admitted as a precautionary measure, and he is stable at present.
A BCCI source confirmed the news and told PTI, “He was taken to Woodlands Nursing Home last night. He has been given medication and is currently stable.” Ganguly is double vaccinated and has been travelling a lot to meet his professional commitments. The BCCI president is also now fulfilling his duties at the ICC at present, he hosts a reality show, and also has multiple endorsements. No wonder Ganguly has to travel extensively.
On Monday night his RT-PCR test returned positive, and he was taken to Woodlands. Ganguly had cardiac issues last year and he was treated in the same hospital earlier. He was admitted to hospital twice earlier this year and underwent emergency angioplasty after having some cardiac issues. His elder brother Snehasish Ganguly had also tested positive for COVID early this year. Snehasish told Reuters about the same and added, “Sourav has got Covid but he is feeling fine.”
