Rohit further goes on to say that the only way things can return to normalcy is if everyone comes together to beat the coronavirus. Suggesting some smart ways in which people can tackle the coronavirus pandemic, Rohit asks people to be a little smart, a little proactive, and know the surroundings around them. Also, as and when any symptoms crop up, Rohit asks people to inform their nearest medical authorities.
He carries on to say that this is because “we all want our kids to go to school, we want to go to the malls and we all want to watch movies in the theatres.”
In the 55-second-long video, the talented batsman also applauded the efforts put in by doctors and medical professionals who are putting their own lives on the line to treat those infected. Rohit lauds health professionals by saying that he appreciates the efforts of all the doctors and the medical staff across the world who have put their lives on risk while taking care of the people who have tested positive with coronavirus.
