Tamil actor and comedian Vivekh was admitted to a Chennai hospital on Friday after he suffered a cardiac arrest. Vivekh has been put on ECMO support. The 59-year-old actor reportedly fainted after expressing discomfort and his family rushed him to the SIMS Hospital at Vadapalani. A senior doctor from the hospital told NDTV: "Actor Vivek is now on ECMO support. We are reviving his heart and lungs." On Thursday, Vivekh received a dose of COVID-19 vaccine at a government hospital. However, the senior doctor from the hospital where the actor is currently being treated told NDTV that they "don't suspect any connection to vaccination at this stage." The hospital is expected to issue a statement after obtaining his family's consent.
