Virender Sehwag urged people to stay safe and follow govt directives amid COVID-19
Former India batsman Virender Sehwag shared a gratitude message to corona warriors and urged people to stay safe and abide with central and state government directives sincerely.
"We are not able to get out of our homes, we are not able to go for morning walks, we are not able to go to shopping malls, if you think these are hardships, then I have to say you have not seen real hardships in life, the doctor, nurses, police are not worrying for their lives and they are making sure that we are safe. They have put their lives at risk. I would just like to tell you to stay safe and abide by whatever the state and central government has asked you to do," Sehwag said in a video post on Twitter.
As the country is under the grasp of coronavirus pandemic, the frontline workers including doctors, nurses, police personnel, sanitation workers, and essential suppliers are putting there all to serve the countrymen in this crisis.
