Ganguly will remain in home isolation for 14 days. Sources said that Ganguly’s test results returned negative today and all his parameters are normal.

Ganguly was admitted to hospital twice earlier this year and underwent emergency angioplasty after having some cardiac issues.
His elder brother Snehasish Ganguly had also tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year.
