Today, all of them would be tested again. “Whether they will be discharged or not, depends on the result of the tests,” sources at the nursing home stated.
BCCI President Ganguly has been doing his best for the needy during the testing times. Not long ago, he donated rice worth Rs 50 lakh for the underprivileged. In the very next month, he gave away 2000 kgs of rice at the Belur Math, the headquarters of the Ramkrishna Mission in West Bengal.
In the meanwhile, the cash-rich Indian Premier League has been postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.
