Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar has been tested positive for Covid-19. She has mild symptoms, but she has been admitted to ICU (Intensive Care Unit). Her niece Rachna told the news agency ANI, "She is doing fine; has been kept in ICU only for precautionary reasons considering her age. Please respect our privacy and keep Didi in your prayers." The singer has been admitted to Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai.

Last year, during the second wave of Covid-19, many celebs had donated an amount to the Maharashtra Chief Minister relief fund, and even the Lag Jaa Gale singer had donated Rs. 7 lakh. The Directorate General of Information and Public Relations (DGIPR) of the Maharashtra government had then tweeted, “Bharat Ratna @mangeshkarlata has donated Rs 7 lakh to #CMrelieffund #COVID_19 Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has thanked her for the help.”
Lata Mangeshkar is known as the nightingale of India and people in the industry fondly call her Lata Didi. She started her career as a singer in the early 1940s. The 92-year-old singer is known for her songs like Lag Jaa Gale, Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh, Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai, Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, Yeh Galiyan Yeh Chaubara, Tere Liya, Jiya Jale, and many more. She has also sung many non-film songs and her track Ae Mere Wattan Ke Logon is one of the best patriotic songs.
The legendary singer has been honoured with multiple awards like Padma Bhushan, Dada Saheb Phalke Award, Padma Vibhushan, and Bharat Ratna. She has won three National Awards and seven Filmfare Awards.
We pray for Lata Mangeshkar's speedy recovery.
