“BCCI President and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been admitted to a hospital after testing positive for Covid-19, say BCCI sources,” PTI had stated. A BCCI source, who is keeping track of Ganguly’s health further told PTI that: “He was taken to Woodlands Nursing Home last night. He has been given medication and is currently stable.”
Ganguly is reportedly stable and there is no cause of concern. It was noted he has been advised by the doctors not to self-isolate and instead get admitted due to certain pre-existing health conditions. This is the same hospital where Ganguly was being treated for his heart condition earlier this year. The former India captain had suffered a cardiac arrest and had undergone angioplasty at the Woodlands Nursing Home.
Ganguly has been travelling considerably , taking part in media interactions. Around the time of the T20 World Cup, the former India captain went to the UAE and more recently has been taking part in several media interactions. Not too long ago, the BCCI president also took part in an BCCI AGM Festival match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, where Ganguly’s Board President XI lost to Jay Shah’s Secretary XI.
We are hopeful that Dada has a speedy recovery.
