Ganguly discharged after COVID-19 treatment, to remain in home isolation

Kolkata, December 31 (PTI): BCCI president and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly was on Friday discharged from a hospital here after being treated for Covid-19 but will remain in home isolation for the next two weeks.

The former skipper will be in home isolation under doctors’ supervision and has not been infected with the Omicron variant, hospital authorities said.

“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 hospital official told PTI.

The 49-year-old was rushed to the Woodlands Multispeciality hospital on Monday night as a precautionary measure after his RT-PCR test came positive for Covid-19.

“He is clinically stable…Dr Saptarshi Basu and Dr Soutik Panda will keep a watch on his health status,” hospital’s MD and CEO Dr Rupali Basu said in a statement.

Ganguly received the “Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail therapy” after admission.

He was admitted to hospital twice earlier this year and underwent emergency angioplasty after having complained of cardiac issues.

His elder brother Snehasish Ganguly had also tested positive for Covid-19 early this year.
