Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek Bachchan are “feeling better” as they get treated for coronavirus at Nanavati Hospital, Dr Abdul Samad Ansari, director of Critical Care Services at the hospital, said on Sunday, July 12.

The father-son duo on Saturday posted on Twitter that they had tested positive for COVID-19 and are in the hospital’s isolation ward.

“I have tested COVID positive. Shifted to the hospital. Hospital informing authorities, family, and staff undergone tests, results awaited,” Amitabh, 77, tweeted.

Soon after his father’s tweet, Abhishek, 44, wrote on social media that both of them had mild symptoms and requested everybody to be calm.

On Sunday, Ansari said both the actors are “stable”.

“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 told PTI.

In his tweet on Saturday night, Abhishek said the family was in touch with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and were complying with the authorities.

On Sunday, a team from the civic body visited Bachchan’s bungalows Janak, Jalsa, and Pratiksha for sanitization and contact tracing.

“A team from BMC is present at Amitabh Bachchan’s bungalows Janak, Jalsa, and Pratiksha for sanitizing the bungalow and contact tracing,” a BMC source told PTI.

Earlier, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope revealed that the entire Bachchan family, including veteran actor Jaya Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, have undergone swab tests for COVID-19.

“Swab tests have been taken of all the other family members, including Jaya ji and Aishwarya ji. Their reports are awaited,” Tope said.
