The affects of the dreaded coronavirus pandemic can me minimized if everyone comes together.
Indian athletes are setting example of what can be done to fight the pandemic. They have not shied away from helping the people in varied ways. When the morale of whole country is low their actions will surely boost the confidence of many as the country looks to figuring out solution to the problems.
