“We have discharged Ganguly this afternoon. He will have to be in home isolation for the next fortnight under doctors’ observation. After that the next course of treatment will be decided,” a Woodlands hospital official told PTI.
Sourav Ganguly Was Treated With Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail Therapy
As part of his treatment at the hospital, Ganguly was given the “Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail therapy” after admission. Ganguly was attended by Saptarshi Basu at Kolkata’s Woodlands Hospital. He also said that there is nothing to worry about ‘Dada’s health at the moment.
“Dada had no fever on Tuesday morning. He is under antibody cocktail therapy,”. Thus, it is only a matter of time until the Bengal tiger is once again, fit and fine” said Saptarhshi.
Ganguly was admitted earlier this year as well with complaints of chest discomfort. He was initially admitted to Woodlands Hospital for what was described as a heart attack by doctors. He underwent angioplasty at the time and was believed to have recovered.
