Sourav Ganguly’s daughter Sana tests Covid positive with other family members


Kolkata: Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) chief Sourav Ganguly’s daughter Sana Ganguly has tested positive for the rare COVID-19 infections, according to news agency ANI. This came only days after the former India captain was released from a Kolkata hospital after overcoming the virus.

Three additional members of Ganguly’s family, including his uncle Debashish, cousin Shuvrodeep, and sister-in-law Jasmine, have all tested positive for COVID-19. Dona Ganguly, on the other hand, has tested negative for the virus.

According to the ANI report, all four relatives, including Sana, are asymptomatic and under home isolation.

Ganguly had been hospitalized at Woodlands Multispeciality Hospital after testing positive for Covid-19. On room air, Ganguly was hemodynamically stable and maintained an oxygen saturation of 99 percent.

Upon testing negative for the Omicron strain, he was released on December 31.

However, the 49-year-old was asked by doctors to remain in home isolation. “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,” news agency PTI quoted hospital officials as saying.

Later, Ganguly’s wife informed the media about ‘Dada’s’ health and said that he is “fine and all his health parameters are fine right now.” “He has no other complications. Sourav had a mild fever and sore throat from Sunday. He was immediately isolated and the test was done,” she had said, as reported by The Times of India.

“Snehasish-da (his brother) had Covid last year. My parents, my mother-in-law also had Covid. Several of our house helps had also tested positive at different times. It is not as if Covid erupted suddenly in the family. Moment Dada had just a hint of fever, he was immediately isolated,” Dona Ganguly concluded.
