President Sonia Gandhi, India’s major opposition parliamentary party, was hospitalized for “covid-related issues,” a party spokesman said Sunday.
Gandhi was admitted to Gangaram Hospital in the capital, New Delhi, said Parliamentary Secretary Landeep Suljewara in a tweet.
“She is stable and will be kept in the hospital for observation,” he said, giving no other details.
A 75-year-old woman tested positive for Covid-19 on June 2.
Born in Italy, Gandhi is the widow of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated in 1991.
Gandhi’s health, famous for being shy to the media, has always been a secret issue, and her party may not reveal too many details, ask funny questions, or ask questions about transparency. There is none.
Almost 10 years ago, Indian media reported that Gandhi was being treated for cancer in the United States.
She continues to visit the United States for “regular health checks,” according to several subsequent media reports.
