Team India vice-captain Rohit Sharma has recently expressed his concern over the rise in coronavirus pandemic. Rohit, who is currently nursing his injury which he copped during the T20I series against New Zealand shared a special message with his fans on Twitter and Facebook via a video.

COVID-19 has taken a toll on the human race halting normal daily life. More than 100000 cases have been registered across the globe with nearly 5000 deaths. More than 100 cases have come up in India and office, schools, and colleges have been shut.

Moreover, the pandemic has forced to call-off many sporting events. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) postponed the Indian Premier League until April 15 which was scheduled to commence from March 29 before calling off the ODI series against South Africa. Although Rohit Sharma was not a part of the series owing to injury concerns, he had a keen look at the proceedings and was in touch with his teammates.

After Virat Kohli came up with a message for his fans during this grave time, Rohit Sharma has also tried to motivate his followers to take up the right steps so that the pandemic can be contained in a large scale.

“Last few weeks have been tough for all of us and the world has come to a standstill which is very sad to see. The only way we can come to normalcy is by all of us coming together. And we can do this by being a little smart, a little proactive, knowing our surroundings and as and when we get any symptoms inform your nearest medical authorities,” said Rohit.

“I appreciate the efforts of all the doctors and the medical staff across the world who have put their lives on risk while taking care of the people who have tested positive with coronavirus. Last, but not the least, my heart goes out for people who have lost their lives and their families. Take care, be safe,” he added.
