Tapu is undergoing treatment for post-Covid-19 complications at a private hospital in the State Capital. Her condition is stated to be critical. She has been battling for life with 100 per cent ventilator support since last few days, family sources said.
Her family members have requested the State Government and the public to help as the singer needs to be shifted outside Odisha- either at Kolkata or Chennai for advanced treatment.
Sources said that the versatile singer tested positive for Covid-19 in May second week. She had reportedly mild symptoms and was in home isolation. On May 31, her oxygen saturation level dropped to 45 and she was admitted to a private hospital in the city.
Though the singer has tested Covid-19 negative, her lungs have been badly affected. She has been shifted to another private hospital in the city around 10 days ago as her condition deteriorated.
Notably, Tapu’s father had succumbed to Covid-19 on May 10.
