Legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam tested positive for COVID 19 and chose hospitalization. The singer was hospitalized at the MGM Healthcare hospital in Chennai on Wednesday. SPB shared a video talking about his health condition on his social media.
The legendary singer says he showed mild symptoms of fever, cold and chest congestion. He then proceeded to get tested for COVID-19. While the doctors advised home-quarantine, SPB chose hospitalization. In the video, he says that his fever has come down and hopes to recover in 2 days.
In the video, SPB said, "Since two-three days, I was having a little discomfort. I had chest congestion, which for a singer is nothing to worry. I also had a cold and fever on and off. I didn't want to take it easy, so I went to the hospital to get it checked. Doctors said that it's a mild case of corona and I was asked to stay home and take medication as prescribed. But, I didn't want to do that as my family is very concerned. So, I got admitted to the hospital. All my friends are here and I am in good hands. I am in good health and nobody has to worry about me. So, please don't bother to call me and find out how I am. I am perfectly alright except for the cold. Even the fever has subsided. In two days, I will be alright. Thank you for your concern. I couldn't attend every single call. I have come here mostly to take rest, so that there won't be any disturbance. Thank you. I am fine, I will be fine."
