COVID positive, Lata Mangeshkar,

Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar is currently battling with COVID-19. She was even hospitalised in ICU in Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital on Tuesday. Her niece had informed that she was in the ICU due to precautionary reasons considering her age. However, speaking about Lata Mangeshkar health, the latest update suggests that she will continue to stay under observation in ICU and will wait and watch, as the doctor told the news agency PTI. 

Associate professor Dr Pratit Samdani said that Lata Mangeshkar also urged all to pray for her recovery. “She continues to be in the ICU under observation. We have to wait and watch. Pray for her recovery. She will continue to remain in the hospital,” added Dr Pratit Samdani. Earlier, Asha Bhosle also shared Lata Mangeshkar health update about her sister who is battling COVID 19 in the ICU at the hospital. 


The veteran singer Asha told TOI, “They aren’t allowing anybody. I went once but wasn’t allowed inside the compound itself. There are severe restrictions and protocols being followed in view of the ongoing pandemic.” Asha Bhosle added, “Besides, I too am not very well- a bit of cough and cold. I haven’t contracted COVID; just a bit under the weather.
