The legendary batsman of his time, Sachin Tendulkar, appealed to the people to take the lockdown instructions seriously and that if the corona virus is a fire, we are the air to spread it. The corona virus caused a worldwide shutdown and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced a 21-day 'lockdown' in his address to the nation. Tendulkar said that it is disappointing that some people are not taking this bandh seriously.
In fact, in a video released on Twitter, "Our government and health experts from all over the world have urged us to stay at home." And we do not go out unless there is an emergency. But still people are not taking it seriously. I have also seen some videos in which people are still playing cricket outside. The batsman who scored the most runs in international cricket said, "Everyone wants us to go out, meet friends, play games but it is very harmful for the country right now." Remember, these days are not holidays. If there is a fire, we are the air that spreads it. The only way to stop this virus is to live in our homes.
Tendulkar further said that he has not been out of the house for the last ten days and will continue to do so for the next 21 days as this is the only way to save society, country and the world at the present time. He said, "For the doctors, nurses, hospital workers who are fighting for us, we can only do so much and accept what they have said. I and my family have not met friends for ten days and will not meet for the next 21 days.
