Noted singer SP Balasubramanyam's condition critical, on life support

Veteran playback singer SP Balasubrahmaniam, who had tested Covid-19 positive earlier this month, is now on life support. A statement issued by the hospital he is admitted to, said on Friday: "There has been a setback in the health of Thiru SP Balasubrahmaniam, who had been admitted at MGM Healthcare for symptoms of COVID since August 5, 2020. In a late night development on August 13, his condition had deteriorated, and based on the advice of the expert medical team attending to him, he has been moved to the ICU and he is on life support and his condition remains critical."

"He is currently under observation by the team of experts from critical care and his haemodynamic and clinical parameters are being closely monitored," the statement added. Earlier in a video, he had revealed that he had fever, a cold and chest congestion, and wanted to get tested for the disease. The reports were positive, and doctors recommended him to follow home quarantine. Instead of going back home, he admitted himself to the hospital, keeping in mind the safety of his family members.

To Bollywood buffs, he is known for his evergreen songs in films like "Ek Duuje Ke Liye", "Maine Pyar Kiya", "Humn Aapke Hain Koun..!" and "Hum Saath-Saath Hain".

As soon as people came to know about his deteriorating health, various celebrities as well as fans took to social media and prayed for his speedy recovery.
