Legendary actor Soumitra Chatterjee's physical condition has further deteriorated. Neurological problems on the one hand, along with high blood pressure. New symptoms of pneumonia have appeared in his body. All in all, the 85-year-old actor's physical condition is in critical condition, hospital officials said.

The medical board wants to sit down with Soumitra's family on Tuesday (October 27) for consultation on her physical condition.

According to hospital sources, his sense is almost non-existent. The veteran actor is not responding to any treatment. It is being planned to take Soumitra for ventilation after understanding his physical condition. As his body was short of breath, he was intubated at 3 pm today (inserting a tube into the trachea so that he could breathe artificially through a ventilator). Platelet count is also very low. Physicians claim that physical development is being hampered due to aging and co-morbidity of the body.

Meanwhile, the medical board will sit with the family and talk about plasmapheresis and the next step. In plasmapheresis, fluid is separated from blood and plasma from blood cells. After treatment, it is re-injected into the body.

But the hope is that Soumitra's heart, kidneys and liver are working properly. Oxygen levels in the body are also good. Only 2 to 4 liters of oxygen has been given but his blood pressure is fluctuating.

The actor was admitted to the hospital since October 6. Although his physical condition deteriorated from time to time, he was slowly recovering. His coronavirus report also came in negative last week. The physical condition has been deteriorating since last Saturday night.
