Since today morning, 24th August, there have been reports doing the rounds in Bollywood news circles that SP Balasubrahmanyam has tested negative for COVID-19. However, his son, SP Charan, has now released a video dismissing the reports. “I usually post Appa’s health updates after I have a discussion with the medical team from the hospital. But, unfortunately, I am forced to put up a post in the morning. I am the only one who gets the information about dad. All information comes to me first and only then I post it to the media. Today, unfortunately, rumours are going around that dad has tested negative for COVID,” said Charan in the video.
Charan was vague though on the status of SP Balasubrahmanyam's coronavirus report, adding, “Regardless of whether he is COVID negative or positive, the status is still the same clinically. He is still on life support. He is stable, fortunately. We are hoping that the stability will help him recover his lungs as early as possible. So please refrain from rumor-mongering. I will put up a post in the evening after I have a discussion with the doctors.” Check out the video below:
The conundrum and rumours regarding the legendary singer's health spread in the entertainment news media after an alleged message from SP Charan’s PRO that read: “Thanks for Your Continuous Support & Prayers for my father. My father is fine and Stable and his Corona test has become Negative.” The PRO is yet to respond to requests to clear the air on both statemetns.
Earlier, MGM Healthcare in Chennai, where the singer has been admitted, issued an official statement that read: “SP Balasubrahmanyam who had been admitted at MGM Healthcare due to COVID-19 continues to be on ventilator and ECMO support in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). His current clinical condition is stable and he continues to be closely monitored by our multidisciplinary clinical team.”
Our hopes and prayers are with SP Balasubrahmanyam and his friends and family.
