“Singer Lata Mangeshkar is in the ICU . She continues to be under aggressive therapy and is tolerating the procedures well at this moment,” Dr Pratit Samdani, who is treating her at Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital, said in a statement. Earlier today, when ETimes reached out to Dr Samdani, he confirmed the development and said, “Lata ji is under strict observation. She remains in a delicate condition.”
Lata Mangeshkar was admitted to a city hospital in early January, after she tested positive for Covid-19 and was also diagnosed with pneumonia. Lata Mangeshkar had mild symptoms and was admitted to the ICU. Around January 28, the singer was taken off the ventilator after she showed slight signs of improvement.
