Chennai: Veteran singer SP Balasubrahmanyam has tested negative for the coronavirus on Monday, confirmed his son SP Charan. However, the singer continues to be on ventilator support.
The 74-year old was admitted on August 5 in Chennai’s MGM hospital after confirming coronavirus positive.
In a video message, Charan said, ” Hello everyone. I apologise for not posting the updates over the weekend. Was hoping for very good news over the weekend. We were expecting dad’s lungs to improve as they were to a certain point where we could remove the ventilator but unfortunately, we are still not at that point where we could rid him of the ventilator. But the good news is dad is COVID-19 negative.”
He added, “It doesn’t again like previously what I had said that negative or positive it doesn’t matter right now because we are all hoping and expecting the lungs to heal fast. They are healing but they are taking some time.”
He also said, “He is very clear and bright and physiotherapy is going on as planned. Again, we thank you all for your love and concern and let’s keep the prayers going. I’m praying for everybody including my father and hope you too are as well. Let’s keep hope alive.”
