CHENNAI Aug 6: Playback singer S P Balasubrahmanyam on Wednesday confirmed testing positive for COVID-19 with ‘mild’ symptoms. The 74-year-old musician shared the information through a video message posted on his official Facebook page.
In the video, the singer detailed about having a little “discomfort” for two days, stating he had chest congestion along with cold and on-off fever, which led him to get tested for the virus.
However, he also mentioned that he could have stayed at home in self-quarantine, as advised, but did not want to put his family in danger, and hence got admitted by his own choice, to recover quickly.
“I am in good hand, I am in good health. Nobody has to worry about this. The fever has subsided, and in two days I’ll be discharged and I’ll be home. Thanks for the concern,” he said in the video message.
