Former Indian Premier League (IPL) Chairman Lalit Modi on Friday revealed that he is on 24x7 external oxygen after contracting COVID-19 twice in two weeks and deep pneumonia.
The 59-year old took to social media to give updates about his health, saying that he was airlifted to London from Mexico after three weeks of confinement.
"After 3 weeks in confinement with a double Covid in 2 weeks accompanied by influenza and deep pneumonia - and post trying several times to leave. Finally landed via air ambulance accompanied by two doctors and superstar super efficient son who did so much for me back in london," wrote Lalit in his instagram post along with his picture from the hospital bed.
"The flight was smooth. Unfortunately still on 24/7 external oxygen. Thank u to all at @vistajet for going the extra mile. I am extremely grateful to all. Love to all. Big hug," he added.
In another post, he also mentioned about his saviours -- two doctors-- who took care of him.
"With my two saviours. The two Drs seriously for 3 weeks monitored me treated.

Last year, the businessman had made his relationship with actress Sushmita Sen official on social media, with a note and an array of photos. However, the duo haven't been spotted much since then, leading to speculation.
