The condition of Sourav Ganguly, president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and former India captain, remains ‘stable’. The hospital where Ganguly is undergoing treatment gave this information on Thursday. Ganguly was admitted to the city hospital on Monday night as a precautionary measure after his RT-PCR test results came out positive for COVID-19.
Ganguly was administered ‘monoclonal antibody cocktail therapy’ on Monday night. According to the statement, ‘The medical board is keeping a close watch on his health.’ Ganguly has been admitted to the hospital twice earlier this year as well and had undergone angioplasty. In the same year, his elder brother Snehasish Ganguly was also found to be Covid positive.
It is noteworthy that this news is going to give tension amidst the increasing threat of Omicron variant of Corona across the country, because 49-year-old Sourav Ganguly had received both doses of the vaccine. As soon as this news went viral, Sourav Ganguly’s fans started wishing for his better health.
Earlier in January 2021, he had to undergo angioplasty following chest pain. When he reached home after spending a few days in the hospital, he was still under the care of doctors. Recently, he was also in the headlines due to the controversy with Virat Kohli.
