According to the latest figures available on Tuesday, the total number of positive cases of Coronavirus in India has crossed over 130. Three deaths have been reported in Kalaburagi, Maharashtra, and West Delhi, respectively. India has suspended all visas, barring for a few categories such as diplomatic and employment, apart from keeping in abeyance the visa-free travel facility to OCI cardholders till April 15.
Moreover, the Centre has ‘strongly advised’ Indians to avoid all non-essential travel. The government is also monitoring all suspected cases and has issued preventive advisories.
The COVID-19 threat has also hit the cricketing world as most of the tournaments have been either canceled or postponed. As the players have been forced to sit at home, they are finding ways to keep themselves occupied.
Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has joined a bandwagon of cricketers to spread awareness among people about this deadly virus. But Harbhajan made sure he mixes up some humor in his message.
Taking to Instagram, Bhajji shared a story in which he can be seen avoid shaking hands with Preity Zinta while former India skipper MS Dhoni can be seen shaking hands with the Kings XI Punjab co-owner but by sporting his keeping gloves.
“One simple step to tackle #Coronavirus,” Harbhajan wrote in the caption.
The BCCI has also suspended the 13th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) till April 15 amid Coronavirus fears. In case, the tournaments start in mid-April, Harbhajan will be seen in action donning the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) jersey.
