The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly has tested positive for Covid-19 and has been admitted to Kolkata’s Woodlands Hospital. He had a mild fever on December 26 (Sunday) and was tested for the virus soon after.

After a positive report, Ganguly got admitted to the hospital on Monday night. However, there is no cause for alarm, and that his condition is stable. The former India captain was advised to avoid home isolation possibly because of some pre-existing health conditions.

Meanwhile, Sourav Ganguly was admitted to the hospital twice within a span of a week earlier this year in January. He was hospitalised after complaining 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.

But, later that month, Sourav Ganguly had to undergo another angioplasty, this time at the city’s Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, and doctors confirmed afterward that two stents had been placed.
