The BCCI chief has been discharged from the hospital after receiving the Monoclonal Antibody Cocktail therapy treatment. Though there were reports of him getting infected with the Omicron variant, his latest samples after the treatment have now tested against the Omicron variant but have matched with the Delta variant. The Omicron variant emerged in South Africa in late November 2021 which almost jeopardized the Indian tour of South Africa.
“Ganguly’s samples tested positive for the Delta plus variant. We are treating him for that,” the official said.
Ganguly has been advised of isolation even after his discharge from the WoodLands hospital. He complained of mild symptoms a few days ago and shifted himself into the hospital as a precautionary measure. His infection was not severe which is why he got discharged from the hospital after the treatment. Earlier this year, the BCCI chief was admitted to the hospital when he suffered discomfort in his chest. The news later confirmed that he had suffered a mild heart attack and underwent angioplasty. The second angioplasty was also performed on him twenty days later when two stents were inserted in his right coronary artery.
The BCCI chief resumed all the activities in March and has been involved in high-profile decision-making since then, including the appointment of new coach Rahul Dravid and the removal of Virat Kohli from ODI captaincy. Ganguly earlier had received both doses of Covid Vaccination.
