Kolkata: BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been admitted to a city hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, the cricket board sources said on Tuesday.
Ganguly is double vaccinated 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.
Ganguly was admitted to hospital twice earlier this year and underwent emergency angioplasty after having some cardiac issues.
