Former Indian Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar admits to Hospital with COVID-19

Former Indian Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has decided to go to a hospital in Mumbai as a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice.

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

Tendulkar shared the news at a time when India is staring at what experts have called a deadliner second wave.

India reported 81,466 news cases and 469 deaths on Thursday – the highest daily spike since December.

The country’s Covid caseload had dropped sharply in January when it was reporting less than 15,000 cases daily. But cases began to spike again in March, largely driven by poor test-and-trace and lax safety protocols.

Many of the new cases were reported in the western state of Maharashtra, where Tendulkar lives in the city of Mumbai.

Since the pandemic began, India has confirmed more than 12.2 million cases and over 163,000 deaths. It has the third-highest number of infections in the world after the United States and Brazil – however, its number of deaths per capita is far lower.

India has registered 118 deaths per million, compared to 1,487 in Brazil and 1,668 in the US.

Nicknamed the Master Blaster, Tendulkar retired from cricket in 2013 but continues to be one of the most popular public figures in India.

He recently took part in the Road Safety World Series Challenge, a veterans’ tournament in the central Indian city of Raipur.

He made his international debut aged 16 in November 1989, setting off an illustrious 24-year career that earned him global recognition.
