Talking about the health conditions of the Bachchan father-son duo, according to a post on Viral Bhayani's IG handle, earlier, Dr Abdul Samad Ansari, head of critical care at Nanavati, had said that their line of treatment for the Bachchan's was supportive therapy for now. He had said, "The senior actor is stable and doing well clinically. His symptoms are mild at this moment. His vitals and appetite are fine. Same is true for Abhishek." He had further added, "It's probably the fifth day since Amitabh's symptoms have surfaced. In COVID patients, the peak impact is seen by the 10-12th day, but not in everyone. Many only have mild symptoms."
Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan were initially home quarantined after testing positive for having mild symptoms of COVID-19, but as per the reports pouring in, they are admitted to Nanavati hospital for treatment. They are in isolation wards and their vitals are stable of now. The 46-year-old actress and her 8-year-old daughter had tested positive for COVID-19 last week, followed by Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, while Jaya Bachchan has tested negative. As per reports flashed in the Hindustan Times, Aishwarya and Aaradhya had complained of breathlessness, after which they were admitted to hospital. A hospital source told PTI, "Both Aishwarya and Aaradhya were admitted to Nanavati hospital today. They are fine. Aishwarya needed medical attention."
The reports suggest that Big B and Abhishek Bachchan are 'stable' and responding well to the treatment, and they will have to be in the hospital for at least seven more days. Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan are in the isolation ward in Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital. After almost the whole Bachchan clan tested positive for COVID-19, all of Amitabh Bachchan's four bungalows - Pratiksha, Janak, Vatsa and Jalsa, where the actor currently lives with his family, have been sealed.
Talking about how the Bachchans might have contracted the virus, ABP news had some solid claims. According to reports by ABP news, it was mentioned that Abhishek Bachchan might have come in contact of the virus when he had visited a dubbing studio in Versova on July 8, 2020, for dubbing of his recently released web-series, Breathe: Into The Shadows. There's another theory as well, according to which, the bungalow of Bachchans, Jalsa which is in Juhu, is considered to be in the vicinity of COVID-19 hotspot, Andheri. As they reside with family in their lavish bungalow Jalsa, the Bachchans might have caught the virus via local transmission. However, the authorities haven't confirmed the route yet, while fans are praying for the speedy recovery of the Bachchan family.
