The Board of Control for Cricket in India president Sourav Ganguly’s relatives have been tested positive for the coronavirus. The state health department has revealed that the family members of the Cricket Association of Bengal secretary Snehashish Ganguly have been tested positive for Covid-19. The wife of Snehashish Ganguly, who is the elder brother of Sourav Ganguly has been tested positive for the virus disease, a senior official revealed.

Furthermore, a domestic helper at Snehashish’s Mominpur house where he was recently residing, has also been found positive. All the family members who are found to be coronavirus positive are undergoing treatment in a private nursing home and they are all fine.

“All the four complained of some health issues, which were similar to the symptoms of Covid-19 when they were staying at another residence and not at Ganguly’s ancestral house in Behala. After testing positive, all the four were shifted to a private nursing home,” a senior official of the department said.

The positive patients will be tested once again on Saturday and accordingly, the further decision on their treatment will be taken by the nursing home.

“Whether they will be discharged or not, depends on the result of the tests,” they said.

There seems to be no improvement in the number of cases and the graph is showing an upward spike. 14,516 cases have been reported on 19 June, which is another record for a single day hike.
