Sourav Ganguly is admitted to Woodlands Hospital in Kolkata and his viral load is 19.5. The 49-year-old has received 'Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail' therapy on Monday night itself. He is currently 'haemodynamically stable', according to the press statement issued by the hospital. 

Ganguly is double vaccinated and has been travelling extensively, taking part in all professional activities. He 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. His elder brother Snehasish Ganguly had also tested positive for COVID early this year. 

Ganguly's blood samples has been sent for testing to check whether he has got the Omicron variant or not.  “Sourav is stable. He underwent angioplasty earlier this year. So as a precautionary measure he has been admitted to Woodlands,” said Snehasish Ganguly, Sourav's elder brother.
