Sourav Ganguly was admitted to the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, news agency PTI reported citing BCCI sources. He has been fully vaccinated against coronavirus and has been travelling extensively, taking part in all professional activities.
The 49-year-old was rushed to a hospital late on Monday night as a precautionary measure after his RT-PCR test returned positive.
"He was taken to Woodlands Nursing Home last night. He has been given medication and is currently stable," a BCCI source, who is keeping track of Ganguly's health, told PTI.
On Wednesday, Woodlands Hospital, where he has been admitted, post a tweet and said, "Sourav Ganguly, BCCI president remains hemodynamically stable. He got admitted at Woodlands Multispeciality Hospital on December 27 with Covid status."
Ganguly, former skipper of the Indian cricket team and current BCCI President, reportedly had a viral load of 19.5 and has been in isolation.
Ganguly has a recent history of medical conditions that landed him in the hospital. Earlier this year in January, he had to get a coronary angioplasty after suffering from blocked arteries and cardiac arrest. He later became stable within days.
The star Indian cricketer was visited by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and a number of cabinet ministers after his medical procedure in January.
His elder brother Snehasish Ganguly had also tested positive for COVID early this year.
