Sachin and Yusuf found COVID-19 positive, does the Road Safety Series has to do anything with it?
Sachin Tendulkar and Yusuf Pathan, both recently took part in Road Safety World Series challenge tournament in Raipur
The legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and the former India all-rounder Yusuf Pathan on Saturday stated that they have tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently in home isolation.
Both the cricketers, who have recently played in a league together, took social media to confirm the news. The questions are raised if the Road Safety series has to do anything with it?
Seems like other players of the league would have to get themselves tested soon as both Sachin and Yusuf have been in contact with the other players.
Talking about one of the famous names to get tested positive, Tendulkar, he clarified that all his family members tested negative.
“I have been testing myself and talking all the recommended precautions to ensure COVID is kept at bay. However, I have tested positive, today following mild symptoms,” the 47-year-old posted on his Twitter handle.
“All others at home have tested negative, I have quarantined myself at home and I am advised by my doctors. I want to thank all the healthcare professionals who are supporting me and many others across the country. Take care of all of you,” he further wrote.
Yusuf on the other hand, later in the evening, announced that he has also tested positive for the highly contagious virus.
“I’ve tested positive for COVID-19 today with mild symptoms. Post the confirmation, I have quarantined myself at home and taking all the necessary precautions and mediations required,” Pathan tweeted.
“I would request those who came in contact with me to get themselves tested at the earliest,” he added.
The COVID-19 cases have increased at a high speed with around 36,000 positive cases recorded in Maharashtra on Friday.
Both Sachin and Yusuf took part in the Road Safety series tournament and the great batting led India to win the tournament which featured many former stars of the game from India and abroad.
