Ravichandran Ashwin reacts to 101-year-old Italian beating the Coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic’s graph of wrath is on an exponential rise all over the world. The number of cases detected has already crossed the 6.5 lakh mark and a death tally of over 31,000.

As a result, most countries have put themselves on lockdown or either taking precautionary measures with quarantine.


The circumstances are unprecedented in terms of fear and panic globally. Within these appalling developments around, the case of a 101-year old Italian Coronavirus survivor serves as music to the years for people looking for inspiration, amidst a grim situation.

India Test specialist Ravichandran Ashwin recently lauded the resilience of the elderly Italian named ‘Mr P.’ who survived the COVID-19 scare.


Ashwin retweeted cricket statistician Mazhar Arshad’s post by saying, “Resolve shown in adversity, a great boost to our human race.”

Earlier, Arshad posted a unique piece of trivia regarding the oldest survivor of the COVID-19 pandemic. ‘Feel-good story of the day. A 101 years old man has recovered from Covid-19 in Italy. He has survived the 1918 flu, a World War and now coronavirus,’ tweeted Mazhar.

Ashwin has been actively doing his bit to promote precautionary measures to survive the pandemic. He recently changed his Twitter name to ‘lets stay indoors India’.


Also, the offie posted a tongue-in-cheek comment on the first anniversary of his infamous Mankad incident with Jos Buttler.

“Hahaha, somebody sent me this and told me it’s exactly been 1 year since this run out happened. As the nation goes into lockdown, this is a good reminder to my citizens. Don’t wander out. Stay inside, stay safe! #21DayLockdown (sic.)” Ashwin wrote in a previous tweet.
