As per the latest (September 7, 2020) update shared by his son SP Charan on social media, the singer has tested negative but still remains under ventilator.
Sharing that the team of doctors was expecting an improvement in the lungs of SPB so they could remove him from the ventilator, Charan said, "We were hoping for a very good news over the weekend. We were expecting dad's lungs to improve as they were to a certain point where we could remove the ventilator, but unfortunately, we are still not at that point we actually could rid him off the ventilator. But the good news is dad is COVID negative, but it doesn't matter as we are hoping and expecting the lungs to heal fast. They are healing but they are taking some time."

He is happy that the seasons have started. He is looking forward for IPL and he is writing and communicating a lot. He is not in sedation. He is clear and bright. The physiotherapy is going on as planned."
