Marginal improvement in health condition of actor Soumitra Chatterjee

    Kolkata, Oct 11 (PTI) The health condition of iconic
Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee, who is being treated for
COVID-19 at a private hospital in the metropolis, marginally
improved on Sunday and he no longer needs oxygen support, a
senior official of the medical facility said.
    Chatterjee was given plasma therapy on Saturday and
the octogenarian also underwent a CT scan, he said.
    "He is better than what his condition was yesterday,
but the actor is still in ITU. Chatterjee is not on oxygen
support," the official said.
    He said the medical board formed to monitor the
treatment of the 85-year-old actor will decide whether to
conduct a second plasma therapy depending on the situation.
    Chatterjee had to be shifted to the ITU after he
experienced restlessness and was in an "acute confusional
stage" on Friday. He was admitted to hospital on Tuesday after
he tested positive for COVID-19. PTI SUS
