Coronavirus: Smriti Mandhana asked to stay in home quarantine

Published:

Indian opening batswoman and T20I vice captain Smriti Mandhana has been asked by her hometown’s health officer to stay in home quarantine as a precautionary measure after her hometown witnessed a rapid increase in COVID-19 positive patients, as per a report in Circle of Cricket.

Mandhana, who played a role in India’s successful campaign at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, and travelled back to the country two days  after playing the final on March 8. She stayed in Mumbai till March 23 before heading back home to Sangli.

However, the threat of coronavirus has wrecked a havoc in Sangli after it as many as 25 people from the same family in Islampur tested positive. To take preventive measures, the Sangli Municipal Corporation (MNC) has requested the Mandhana to stay in isolation at her home.

Sangli (MNC) Health Officer Dr. Ravindra Tate said, “Yes, we told Smriti Mandhana to stay in home quarantine on March 25. We are also keeping an update on her health on a daily basis. Amid Coronavirus pandemic, we are taking these precautionary steps. The health of the people in home quarantine is being checked by the doctors daily here.”

The number of COVID-19 patients in India has grown rapidly, it has gone above 1400, and close to 250 of them have been reported from the state of Maharashtra. At a time like this, it is important for everyone to practice social distancing.

A couple of days back, in a video posted on her social media handles, Mandhana urged the people of Sangli to stay at home and help fight the pandemic.
