Earlier, Dr Pratik Samdani of Breach Candy Hospital had given a statement. The best doctors are calling and taking care of them, “she added.
She had previously told PTI that the singer had tested positive for the virus and reported mild symptoms. However, due to her age, it is advisable to admit her to the ICU. “She is mildly COVID-19 positive. Given her age, the doctors advised us to stay in the ICU because she needs constant care. We can not take a chance. As a family, we want the best, we want to make sure she has 24X7 care. She will be fine, but she’s old. Because it will take her some time, and COVID-19 will take seven days, “she said.
