The hospital said that a brain clot was detected after which the surgery was conducted. “Post surgery he continues to remain critical on ventilatory support,” the hospital said in a medical bulletin released today.
Mukherjee had announced on Twitter on Monday that he was tested positive for the coronavirus disease. “On a visit to the hospital for a separate procedure, I have tested positive for Covid-19 today. I request the people who came in contact with me in the last week, to please self isolate and get tested for Covid-19,” he had tweeted.
