Four family members of the former Indian cricket team skipper Sourav Ganguly have tested positive for Coronavirus
The wife of Ganguly's elder brother Snehashish Ganguly, Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary as well as her parents have been tested positive for the virus, reported News 18.
Other than them, the domestic help at Snehasish's Mominpur home has also been diagnosed for the virus.
Snehashish, who is himself a former Ranji-level cricketer, was also tested for the virus but his reports came negative.
He has since been advised home quarantine. All those infected have been admitted to a private nursing home and are receiving treatment. Snehashish is presently the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).
"All the four complained of some health issues, which were similar to the symptoms of COVID-19 when they were staying at another residence and not at Ganguly's ancestral house in Behala. After testing positive, all the four were shifted to a private nursing home," a senior official said.
Earlier Ganguly had said cricket will be back to normal when the vaccine for the virus is out.
"This is something that has got the world in sheer shock. I think things will be back on track. We did not have the medicines to take care of it. But over a six-seven months' period once the vaccine comes up everything will be normal," Ganguly said during a live class on 'Unacademy' app.
"Cricket will be very strong. There will be different tests, medical examinations for players, but I don't see it coming in the way of sport and it will go forward. As the vaccine comes out, it's going to be normal life I think. If you fall sick, whether you have fever, jaundice you pick those medicines and get better."
