On sunday, he experienced mild symptoms of fever and his RT-PCR report tested positive for Covid-19 and he was rushed to Woodlands Nursing Home hospital on monday.

Ganguly is double vaccinated against Covid-19 and his condition is stable now. He is admitted to hospital instead of self-isolation due to his certain pre-existing health conditions. Earlier this year, he had suffered cardiac arrest and had undergone angioplasty at the Woodlands Nursing Home where he has been admitted now.

Ganguly’s brother Snehasish also confirmed this news, who himself had tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this year. He also said that Ganguly has been given medication and is stable now.

Ganguly, 49, has been travelling extensively, taking part in media interactions. He had also gone to UAE at the time of T20I World Cup.

He is also the centre of Virat Kohli’s controversy related to Kohli’s removal as India’s ODI captain. During the media interactions, Ganguly said that Virat Kohli has been requested to carry on as the T20I captain of India but he did not agree. But later on Kohli gave opposite statement to media, he said that his decision to step down as T20I captain was well received.
