Aishwarya, daughter +ve too, in self-isolation

Mumbai, July 12

With actor Amitabh Bachchan, 77, and three members of his family testing positive for Covid, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation today sealed and sanitised the four bungalows of the Bachchan family — Jalsa, Pratiksha, Janak and Vatsa.

After Amitabh and his son Abhishek, 44, the megastar’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya, 46, and his granddaughter Aaradhya, 8, too have tested positive, Maharashtra’s Health Minister Rajesh Tope said. Amitabh’s wife Jaya Bachchan has tested negative.

Amitabh and Abhishek are in the isolation ward of Nanavati Hospital. Dr Abdul Samad Ansari, who heads critical care services at the hospital, said: “Both are comfortable and feeling better. General blood chemistries are acceptable with stable vitals. Both slept well. They are stable.”

Abhishek said his wife and daughter would be “self quarantining at home”, while he and his father would “remain in hospital till the doctors decide otherwise”. — PTI
