A day after Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan were tested positive for coronavirus and admitted to Mumbai's Nanavati hospital, all their family members underwent tests. Soon after, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and 8-year-old daughter Aaradhya Bachchan were also tested positive but are asymptomatic. On Sunday morning, the hospital's public relation officer had announced that the father-son were stable and showing mild symptoms. Now, Dr Abdul Samad Ansari, director of Critical Care Services at Nanavati Hospital, has given an update about Amitabh and Abhishek's status in the hospital. 

Speaking to PTI, Ansari said that Amitabh and Abhishek continue to remain stable and in fact are now feeling better. "Both Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek are comfortable and feeling better. General blood chemistries are acceptable with stable vitals. Both slept well and had their breakfasts. They are stable,” Ansari said on Sunday evening.

 "They both are in the (isolation) ward and are clinically stable. At present, they do not require aggressive treatment. They are okay with the first line of medication. They are being given supportive therapy," a source told PTI. 

Apart from immediate family members, Mumbai's civic body BMC also tested the Bachchans' household staff as well as drivers and watchmen for Covid 19. Their tests are awaited. Vishwas Mote, Assistant Municipal Commissioner, K west ward of BMC has confirmed that all four of Amitabh's bungalows Jalsa, Janak, Pratiksha and Vatsa have been sealed and declared as containment zones.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, he said on Sunday, "All four bungalows of Bachchan family named Jalsa, Janak, Pratiksha and Vatsa have been sealed and declared as containment zone. We are conducting contact tracing among all staff members, and till now 30 have been identified as high-risk contacts."  Meanwhile, Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Nanda and her kids Agastya, Navya have been tested negative.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Please stay tuned for Mr. Big B's next update. It may go a lil' something like this: "Sitting on a porcelain throne (the toilet) that is just as cozy as my bed.....if I even so much as cough, the sensors in the loo will alert the staff and someone will promptly.....such caring service ....only at Nanavati." Please post, PV.

I think bachchan's are faking it to get attention. Just as usual, they left out Jaya. Show me the proof. Everybody was getting so much attention so they decide to divert it, wonder how much money they got from Karan. If none of them die then I will assume I was right. People die from Covid 19 but watch they will all come out healthy

pretty much 95% of people with covid recover. the reason why fear the disease is, it spreads really fast, we dont want those 5% to die and if many people have to get hospitalized we might not have enough hospital facilities and lot more people will die coz of lack of facilites

I guess they may have Covid mild symptoms, I do no think they are lying but getting admitted to Nnavati is a big scam, when they are so close to Ambani's Lialvati, they can get in to any hospital, but they chose this one because they have wasted interest, one can clearly see they have their own investment and Hospital reputation has gone down the drain and thats the reason these people got admitted there, otherwise no one with mild symptoms get bed in India right now, its hard as there are many patients, yes big B one can understand as he has underlying conditions, but AB junior surely not required.. Anyway these people are always after money, and one can surely see how fake these celebrities are, there is no need to worship these people, when will design fans learn that all these people only work for themselves thats it.. Anyway hope they recover soon.. Wish them well..

Wow mild symptoms but admitted to hospital , already recovering wow ...... while the poor are struggling to even find beds . It’s a sad state of affairs all across the globe . The rich and privileged gets top notch care while the poor / minority / old / destitute are dying not even surrounded by loved ones . Essential workers are and blue collor jobs are struggling and going out there to work . Why can these elite and WFH people do their jobs from homes . Why did he have to go to the studio to dub amid a pandemic and put so many at risk including his young little daughter and aged parent with comorbidities . In Bollywood we can’t believe half of what they put out there

True. Glad you are feeling better now. Take care.

Glad to hear they are better. Please pay attention to those in need and who have limited awareness or access to medical care. The poor and middle class are equally as important and have the right to receive the same standard of care. Celebrities, rich business people, politicians etc are just rich and/or famous people who can afford any medical care at any private hospital. Glad the bachans got the care they received however most people with mild symptoms do not get admitted unless symptoms are moderate wirh Co-morbidities or severe. They have 30 people managing their homes. While the heath care workers and other essential workers are carrying the burden and still have to manage their homes and care for their families on their own. Worry about those who may have limited access to medical care, food, virtual education, and other basic necessities. Our focus should be on the majority not the rich minority of the population.

Daily over 26000 people are infected. What is so special about film stars? Are they not human?

Anonymous 4 months ago

They are not unimportant. But they are not any more important than others and in no way are they essential workers or a necessity in our day to day lives. This attitude and privilege must change.

apparently its a publicity stunt. they are shareholders at nanavati and this is for hospital publicity!!!! what a scam bollywood is. shame!!

Is this true. Their health was reported on cnn. Unfortunately we all should be more worried about the vulnerable who may have difficulty getting the healthcare and basic needs met. Only when everyone gets good health care education and opportunities will a country prosper.
