Sonia Gandhi discharged from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, faces ED probe on June 23

Representative Jiram Ramesh said that Congress President Sonia Gandhi, 75, was discharged from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Monday evening after she underwent treatment for a lower respiratory tract fungal infection after contracting COVID-19.

“President of Congress Smt. Sonia Gandhi was discharged from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital this evening and advised to rest at home,” tweeted Ramesh, who is in charge of communications in Congress.

She is scheduled to be questioned by the Enforcement Directorate on June 23 in connection with a money laundering investigation into the National Herald’s affairs.

She was taken to the hospital with severe nosebleeds and other complications after contracting Covid-19 the previous Sunday. While working in the hospital, doctors discovered a fungal infection in her lower respiratory tract which forced her to undergo surgery.

Gandhi tested positive for Covid-19 and developed a mild fever ten days before hospitalization. “She is currently being treated for this disease along with other symptoms of post-Covid-19. She is still being closely monitored and treated,” a statement issued by the AICC on Friday said.

Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra visited Sonia in the hospital. The Congresswoman accompanied her daughter Priyanka to the hospital. On June 12, minutes after an emergency department cordoned off her admission, her son, Rahul Gandhi, was at her hospital bedside.

The President of the Congress usually undergoes hospital treatment under the supervision of chest physician Dr. Arup Basu.
