The former India batsman and captain added that his symptoms were mild
On Saturday, Sachin Tendulkar announced on social media that he has tested positive for Covid-19. The former India batsman and captain added that his symptoms were mild, that no one else in his family had been affected and that he has gone into isolation.
Tendulkar was recently involved in a T20 tournament that pitted former players from India, England, West Indies, Bangladesh, South Africa and Sri Lanka against each other. Crowds were allowed in to watch those matches in Raipur.
According to Johns Hopkins University, which has tracked the spread of the pandemic since it first hit in 2019, India is third on the list of countries with the most Covid-19 infections and fourth on the list of most deaths.
