Veteran singer S P Balasubrahmanyam, who is getting treatment at a private hospital in Chennai after testing positive for Covid-19, is said to be showing improvement.
Late on Sunday, his son and singer-actor S P Charan said in a video statement, ““I know it’s a late update but we wanted to give a thorough one from the medical team. Since it’s a Sunday, there were a few things happening at the hospital.”
He added: “Dad was shifted from the ICU on the third floor to an exclusive ICU room on the 6th floor. The shifting took some time. Dad is still on life support but he is able to recognize people and doctors now. He even gave thumbs up sign.”
According to Charan, “He is breathing more comfortably than few days back. Doctors see it as a pleasant sign and consider it as a road towards recovery. There is a lot of effort from the medical team. The recovery will take a long time but we are hopeful that he will recover as early as possible. He is not fully sedated now.”
Talking about his mother, who too has tested positive for Covid-19, Charan said, “Mom is getting better and she will be discharged in two to three days. We are hopeful that dad will follow her back home. Let’s keep praying. My family is indebted to all your love, affection and prayers.”
