The party said that the Congress President Sonia Gandhi ‘developed profuse bleeding from the nose following a recent Covid infection.’

The party said, “She was immediately put under treatment and underwent a related follow-up procedure yesterday morning. A fungal infection in her lower respiratory tract was also detected upon admission. She is currently being treated for it along with other post-Covid symptoms.

“She continues to be under close observation and treatment.”

Rahul Gandhi had visited Sir Ganga Ram Hospital to meet his mother on Thursday. His sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been staying with her mother since Rahul Gandhi was being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case.
