Doctor Pratit Samdani, who is treating Lata Mangeshkar, has told ANI that the veteran singer is still in ICU, but there has been a slight improvement in her health.

Mangeshkar was admitted to Mumbai's Breach Candy Hospital on Sunday after testing COVID positive. Her niece had told ANI that her symptoms are mild.

Speaking to The Quint Pratit Samdani had said, "Lata Mangeshkar was admitted early morning on Sunday. She has been diagnosed with COVID pneumonia and is in ICU. She is responding, but we will have to keep her under observation for around 7-10 days".

In 2019, the 92-year-old singer was hospitalised after being diagnosed with pneumonia. She was discharged after 28 days. Mangeshkar had taken to Twitter to inform fans that she was feeling much better.


"For the past 28 days, I was at Breach Candy hospital. I was diagnosed with pneumonia. The doctors preferred that I extend my stay in hospital and go home when completely healthy.”

Today, I am back home with the blessings of Mai and Baba I have my deepest gratitude to all my well-wishers all over. Your prayers and good wishes have worked and I humbly bow down to each one of you," Mangeshkar had written.

Mangeshkar made her Instagram debut in 2019. She has been quite active on the social media platform. She recently posted a throwback video of her talking about her late father.
