Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president, tested positive for Covid19 late Monday night and was treated with Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail Therapy, which is used to treat mild-to-moderate Corona Virus in high-risk patients. "He (Ganguly) got Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail Therapy on the same night and is currently hemodynamically stable," according to a news release from the Woodlands Hospital, where Ganguly is being treated. Dr. Saroj Mondal, Dr. Saptarshi Basu, and Soutik Panda, in consultation with Dr. Devi Shetty and Dr. Aftab Khan, have formed a medical board to monitor his health."
Ganguly has received two vaccinations and has travelled widely, participating in all professional activities. After his RT-PCR test came back positive late Monday night, the 49-year-old was brought to the hospital as a precaution. Sourav Ganguly has been admitted to the hospital three times this year. He was admitted to the hospital earlier this month after complaining of chest pains. Doctors later revealed that he had a heart attack while exercising at his house in Kolkata and had a right coronary angioplasty. He experienced similar chest symptoms a few weeks later, prompting the second round of angioplasty, which included the placement of two stents in two of his arteries.
