Kolkata/UNI: The overall health condition of octogenarian thespian Soumitra Chattopadhyay remained unchanged, according to Dr Arindam Kar of Bellevue Hospital here on Sunday.

"His consciousness is slightly down compared to previous 48 hours. Not very sure which way he was heading to. We have received reports of tests and we can deduce that the Covid encephalopathy is progressing," Dr Kar said.

The veteran actor who carved a niche for himself for his astounding role as "Feluda" in Oscar winning Director Satyajit Ray's movies was hospitalised on October 06 with Covid-19 positive.

Legendary octogenarian actor Soumitra Chatterjee on Wednesday tested negative for Covid-19.

The health condition of the thespian also improved, doctors attending on him said.

The actor had no fever since Tuesday evening, but he is still in an “acute confusional state”.

“His health condition has improved compared to what it was in the past 48 hours. He is now responding to verbal commands and opening eyes at times spontaneously,” doctor added.

His kidney, liver function, ammonia level in the blood, the infective mucus are nomalising or are almost normal. The cardiac function, blood pressure, respiration and urine output are also improving, doctor informed.
