Lata Mangeshkar was hospitalized in the ICU with Covid-19 and pneumonia.
Lata Mangeshkar, the legendary vocalist, was hospitalised to Mumbai's Breach Candy hospital's ICU after testing positive for Covid-19. She is also afflicted with pneumonia. Dr. Pratit Samdhani, who leads the team of doctors treating Mangeshkar, said she was taken to the hospital early on Sunday morning with Covid-19 and pneumonia.
"Lata taai has tested positive for Covid-19, and doctors advised us to admit her in the ICU because she needed constant care," her niece Rachna Shah told indianexpress.com. We can't afford to take any chances. We want the best for her as a family, and we want to make sure she gets the greatest medical treatment possible," she said.
Prakash Javadekar, a member of Parliament, wished Mangeshkar a speedy recovery. "Lata Mangeshkar ji, get well soon." "The entire country is wishing for your good health," he wrote in Hindi and English on Twitter.

Lata Mangeshkar, also known as the 'Nightingale of India,' is the eldest of four siblings, including Asha Bhosle, the younger sister. Lata Mangeshkar has been singing since the age of 13 and is a member of the Mangeshkar family of Bollywood.
She is acknowledged with changing the face of Indian music and the role of female vocalists in India over the course of a nearly seven-decade career, becoming an inspiration for generations.
"Aayega Aanewaala" from the 1949 film Mahal was one among Mageshkar's first great hits. In 1974, she was named the most recorded artist in history by The Guinness Book of Records. Between 1948 and 1974, she was said to have recorded "not less than 25,000 solo, duet, and chorus backed songs in 20 Indian languages."
"That lengthy journey is with me, and that tiny kid is still with me," Mangeshkar previously told PTI about her journey. She hasn't left the house. Some people refer to me as "Saraswati" or claim to have her blessings. I'm told I'm this and that. All of this, I feel, is due to my parents' blessings, our deity Mangesh, Sai baba, and god."
