Currently, the World is facing possibly the biggest crisis since the second World War in 1940’s. The COVID-19 outbreak has completely frozen and forced the world to confine to themselves only. The contaminating Virus that spreads from human to human, has infected over 8,00,000 people the world over. Almost 40,000 humans have lost their lives fighting the Corona Virus.
To combat the ever worsening situation, the Governments world over have locked down their respective countries till the situation improves significantly. People have been forced to go in self quarantine mode to maintain social distancing and break the chain of CORONA virus. Indian Government have also locked down the whole country till 14th April.
In the time of crisis, Indian Government have also set up a relief fund account under the name PM’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situation (PM-CARES) to collect donations. PM Narendra Modi himself urged the nation and celebrities to donate and help the nation in the time of Crisis.
So far, the appeal has done wonders as a number of Business Men, Celebrities and Common People have come forward to help Indian Government fight the Chinese Virus. A number of leading business companies including Tata Group(500 CR.), Ambani group (Dedicated Hospital and Fund), Adani group (100 CR.), Patanjali (25 CR.), Jindal Group (100 CR.) have donated huge amounts in the PM-Cares fund.
Cricket Celebrities are not too far behind as Viru-shka, Rohit Sharma, RavindraJadeja, Ajinkya Rahane, Mithali Raj and many others have come forward to donate huge sums. On Monday, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, in a tweet, pledged the nation to stay home and safe in the time of Crisis. The lovely couple also donated a huge sum in the relief fund set up by Indian and Maharashtra Government.
The couple tweeted, “Anushka and I (Virat) are pledging our support towards PM-CARES Fund & the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (Maharashtra).
