Even as some of the countries are slowly recovering from Coronavirus, there are a few nations where the cases are at its peak. India and Pakistan are two of the countries where the pandemic is now reaching its peak it seems. Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi, on Saturday, stunned everyone by confirming that he has been tested positive for the Coronavirus.
He is not the first cricketer to be diagnosed with COVID-19 in the country though. Pakistan have already lost their former cricketers Zafar Sarfraz and Riaz Sheikh to the virus while the former opener Taufiq Umar was also tested positive. However, he recovered from the disease and confirmed the same recently. Moreover, he has also urged everyone to take the pandemic seriously and stay at home to be safe.
As far as Shahid Afridi is concerned, he was busy helping the poor and needy people through his Foundation in Pakistan even during the lockdown in the country. While informing the news to his fans, Afridi stated that he wasn’t feeling well since the last couple of days and hoped for a quick recovery.
“I’ve been feeling unwell since Thursday; my body had been aching badly. I’ve been tested and unfortunately, I’m covid positive. Need prayers for a speedy recovery, InshaAllah #COVID19 #pandemic #hopenotout #staysafe #stayhome,” his tweet read.
