Earlier, Ganguly was hospitalised at 1 pm on January 2 with “chest discomfort, the heaviness of head, vomiting and a spell of dizziness” while performing physical exercise in the home gymnasium at around 11 am.
Following this, doctors had conducted angioplasty on him. On January 2, 48-year-old Ganguly was tested for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which turned out to be negative.
When Ganguly had come to the hospital earlier, the hospital conducted tests in which he had suffered a mild heart attack and the former India skipper had blockages in three coronary arteries.
“He came in good time. One of his arteries had a critical blockage which we removed through angioplasty,” Aftab Khan, a cardiologist, told reporters outside the hospital.
“He has improved, the pain in his chest has reduced. He is stable now. He has to be kept under observation for 24 hours so he will have to stay in hospital.” The private hospital formed a medical board and they were regularly updating the media on Sourav Ganguly’s health.
