Shahid Afridi

In the latest development, Pakistan’s cricketing start Shahid Afridi has been tested positive for coronavirus.
Former Pakistan cricketer shared the news with his fans on Twitter this afternoon.

Boob Boom has been very active in helping people through Shahid Afridi Foundation ever since the pandemic broke in Pakistan. He also offered to work with brands for free in exchange. In return, Afridi asked for ration and funds that can be utilized to help the needy amid COVID-19.

Afridi also started a social media challenge as part of his campaign and nominated two international and one local cricketer for it. All they have to do is to record a video with a tip on staying safe. Soon cricketers from everywhere including India voiced their support for the cause.

Fans sending prayers

Afridi fans and cricket lovers are now sending prayers for Afridi from across the world and Pakistan.

Authorities in Pakistan have stepped up enforcement of government safety measures after a rise in the daily number of coronavirus infections pushed total cases to more than 100,000.

Pakistan lifted its lockdown last month, putting protocols in place for the reopening of markets, industries, and public transport — including mandatory wearing of masks and social distancing. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) had warned Pakistan against lifting the lockdown in a letter.
