Vivek, 59, is currently in a critical condition on ECMO in the intensive care unit, the hospital said.

“This is an acute coronary syndrome with cardiogenic shock,” the hospital said.

A cardiogenic shock is a condition where the heart is not able to pump sufficient blood that the body needs, which occurs due to a severe heart attack.

According to the doctors, Vivek had complained to his family members about chest pain.

The doctors have also ruled out his current medical condition having any link with the Covid-19 vaccine shot that he took on Thursday.
