Star RCB players Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers and Glenn Maxwell recently delivered ss COVID-19 awareness message on the official Twitter handle of Royal Challengers Bangalore. For the last few days, India has been recording over 300000 cases and registered 349961 instances of it on Friday. The number of fatalities have also been picking up pace during this period since the country is facing oxygen cylinders shortages for critical patients. The magnitude of the spread has forced several state governments to impose lockdown within the regions to slow down the outbreak.
Virat Kohli, De Villiers and Maxwell all three echoed the same sentiments of the message. They asked the people in general to wear masks, use sanitizations and maintain social distancing.
The video started off with RCB captain Virat Kohli saying that as a captain, he likes to lead from the front and he wants the people of India to do the same, keeping their hands clean, wear masks, and step outside only if it’s essential.
“Hi, I am Virat Kohli, as a captain I try to lead from the front and help people around. I request all of you to do the same, sanitise your hands, step out only if necessary and wear your masks at all times,” Kohli said.
