Playback singer S P Balasubrahmanyam, who is suffering from Covid-19, continues to be on life support in the intensive care unit of MGM Healthcare in Chennai, said a medical bulletin issued by the hospital on Saturday afternoon.
“He remains stable and doctors are closely monitoring his clinical parameters,” said the medical bulletin issued by assistant director Dr Anuradha Baskaran.
The 74-year-old playback singer, who was admitted to hospital on August 5 with mild Covid-19 symptoms, has been put on life-support after his health condition became critical.
On August 5, the singer posted a video message on his Facebook page stating that he had tested positive for Covid-19 after showing mild symptoms. He said although doctors had advised him home isolation, he decided to get himself admitted to hospital as he was concerned about the health of his family members. He requested people not to call him as he wanted some rest.
