The former cricketer was tested positive for the novel coronavirus recently and was in isolation for 21 days and has now recovered and tested negative.
Thanking everyone for their warm wishes and prayers for his speedy recovery he said that when blood plasma is given at the right time to an infected patient, the patient recovers fast.
He urged everyone who has tested positive for the virus and has now recovered from the deadly infection to talk with their doctors and if possible to donate blood plasma to the patients in need so that they can recover fast.
He also said, “I have already talked with my doctor and when permitted I will donate plasma to the needy.”
Thank you everyone for your warm wishes. It's made my day special. I am very grateful indeed.
Take care and stay safe. pic.twitter.com/SwWYPNU73q
