BENGALURU: Former AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala, who was slated to be released on January 27 after serving a four-year term at Bengaluru Central Prison in a disproportionate assets case, has tested positive for Covid-19.
She is being treated in the Intensive Care Unit of Victoria Hospital, said medical superintendent Dr Ramesh Krishna K.
The repeat RT-PCR test of Sasikala, who had tested negative on Wednesday on admission at Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital and shifted the next day to Victoria Hospital following persistent fever and breathlessness, came positive on Thursday night.
“She is in a stable condition and not on a ventilator. She is suffering from severe lung infection and her CT severity score is about 16/25. She is on oxygen support; 10 litres of oxygen have been given though her saturation level is 98%. As she is diabetic, we’re monitoring her,” he said. She is suspected to be suffering from Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI).
She has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypothyroidism and urinary tract infection.
The hospital said she is “stable” and examination revealed “bilateral crepitations”.
