New Delhi: Singing legend Lata Mangeshkar has been admitted to a hospital in Mumbai after she tested positive for COVID-19, her niece said on Tuesday. The 92-year-old singer is in the ICU ward at the Breach Candy hospital and her symptoms are mild, her niece Rachana informed.

The singer, who is also known as the ‘Nightingale of India’, is doing fine and has been admitted to the ICU as a precautionary measure. “Didi is admitted to ICU after she was diagnosed with COVID-19. Dr Pratik Samdani is treating her and he says that there is nothing serious but she needs to be kept in ICU for precautionary reasons seeing her age,” her niece said.

“As a family, we want the best and want to ensure she has 24X7 care,” Rachana said.

“Please respect our privacy and keep Didi in your prayers,” she added.

The legendary singer has recorded songs in over a thousand Hindi films and has sung many tracks in several Indian languages and foreign languages.

Mangeshkar’s iconic songs include ‘Lag Jaa Gale’, ‘Yeh Galiyan Yeh Chaubara’, ‘Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya’, ‘Bahon Mein Chale Aao’, ‘Tere Liye’ from ‘Veer Zara’ and many more.
