A statement by a CAB official confirmed that Snehasish was hospitalised following his positive result.

"He was suffering from fever for the last few days and his test report came positive today. He's been admitted to Belle Vue Hospital," a CAB official said.

Furthermore, a BCCI official confirmed that after the report Ganguly also isolated himself.
