“The fight against COVID-19 has been like the last Test match that India played. There were lots of ups and downs, but our frontline warriors have taken blows, batted long and finally kept the team from collapsing,” the note read.
“As we thank them and pray for a successful vaccination drive, remember: the series isn’t over and we shouldn’t be careless now.”
Tendulkar further stressed that it is not the time to drop our guards in this fight against the coronavirus and urged everyone to maintain social distancing and follow the directives issued by the government.
“Continue wearing masks, practice social distancing and follow government directives as we take the next step in this war against this COVID-19. We can and will win this together as a TEAM,” the note further read.
On Saturday, Manish Kumar, a sanitation worker at Delhi’s AIIMS, became the first person in the country to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
