Sachin Tendulkar hospitalised after being tested Covid-19 positive


Sachin Tendulkar COVID Positive: Sachin Tendulkar has been hospitalised as a precautionary measure, a week after he tested positive for COVID-19. Tendulkar, who will turn 48 later this month, was previously quarantining at home after testing positive following mild symptoms.

He has been admitted to a hospital in Mumbai after receiving medical advice.

He wrote on Twitter: “As a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice, I have been hospitalised. I hope to be back home in a few days. Take care and stay safe everyone,” the legendary cricketer tweeted on Friday.

Several Indian cities, including Mumbai, have seen a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases in the past few weeks.

Tendulkar, 47, shared the news at a time when India is staring at what experts have called a “deadlier second wave”.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra continues to remain the worst-hit state due to coronavirus as the total case count went past 28.12 lakh.
