It’s been over four days since the actor-turned-politician Taraka Ratna has been admitted to the hospital and there’s no clarity on his condition. Finally, the Doctors of Bengaluru’s Narayana Institute of Cardiac Sciences (Narayana Hrudayala) released an official bulletin on his health condition.
“We would like to clarify certain media reports, and state that he has not been put on any ECMO support till now. His family is constantly updated about his condition. Any changes to his clinical condition will be notified as required. We request that the public continue to support us in providing privacy and uninterrupted treatment,” a hospital statement said.
Taraka Ratna suffered a severe cardiac arrest on 27th January while he was in a political rally and was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital in Kuppam. He was shifted to Bengaluru the next day and he’s been under treatment since then.
