BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday went into home quarantine after his elder brother and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) joint secretary Snehasish Ganguly tested positive for COVID-19.Snehasish, a former Bengal first-class player, has been admitted to the Belle Vue hospital here after his COVID report came positive. The rumours of Snehashish contracting the virus had surfaced last month too but he denied being infected by the virus back then.
"He was suffering from fever for the last few days and his test report came positive today. He's been admitted to Belle Vue Hospital," a CAB official told PTI. Snehasish had shifted to their ancestral house, where Sourav is based, in Behala after his wife and in-laws at his Mominpur residence tested positive for the dreaded virus. A report in Indian Express claims that Sourav had celebrated his birthday on July 8 with all his family members. Now, he is expected to undergo isolation for 10-days.
