An official statement under SP Charan's name has been doing the rounds, which read: "Dear Media Friends, thanks for your continuous support and prayers for my father... My father is fine and stable and his corona test has become negative... Will keep u posted about the updates. Thanks," SP Charan said in the statement.

However, SP Charan later took to his social media handle and posted a video where he dismissed the rumours. "I usually post Appa’s health updates after I have a discussion with the medical team from the hospital. But, unfortunately, I am forced to put up a post in the morning. I am the only one who gets the information about dad. All information comes to me first and only then I post it to the media. Today, unfortunately, rumours are going around that dad has tested negative for COVID,” said Charan in the video.

Regardless of whether he is COVID negative or positive, the status is still the same clinically. He is still on life support. He is stable, fortunately. We are hoping that the stability will help him recover his lungs as early as possible. So please refrain from rumor-mongering. I will put up a post in the evening after I have a discussion with the doctors,” he added sounding vague about SPB's COVID-19 status.

SPB was admitted to MGM Healthcare in Chennai after he tested positive. Initially, he only had mild symptoms but his condition worsened on August 13 and was put on life support. Fans and colleagues of the singer got together on social media and prayed for his speedy recovery.
