Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Snehasish Ganguly on Saturday clarified that he is "perfectly healthy" and attending his office daily after various media reports claimed that he tested positive for coronavirus.
"I am perfectly healthy and I am going to office everyday. The news doing the rounds about my illness is baseless and is not expected in these trying times," the CAB secretary said.
"Hope that after this, it will firmly put a lid on such untrue sensational news that are doing the rounds," added the former Ranji cricketer.
There have been reports of family members of Gangly testing positive for COVID-19.
Earlier in the day, media reports claimed that the wife of Snehasish Ganguly, the elder brother of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly, was found to be positive for coronavirus.
Reportedly, the mother-in-law and father-in-law of Snehashish Ganguly had also tested positive for the disease last week.
