Ferguson reacts after testing negative for COVID-19
Coronavirus has claimed the lives of 5,000 across the world and has infected more than 1.6 lakh people globally. Recently, New Zealand pacer Lockie Ferguson has opened up testing negative for the COVID-19. Soon after the first ODI of the Australia-New Zealand Chappell-Hadlee series, Ferguson complained of a sore throat.
Then, he was kept under isolation at the team hotel. The pacer added that he had only some mild symptoms of cold.
Eventually, there was nothing to worry about as Lockie Ferguson was tested negative for the virus infection. He breathed a sigh of relief upon learning the test results.
“I think everyone in every industry is probably feeling it a little bit. Not just us in sport. Certainly, we want to play cricket but under these circumstances, we are following the directions of people in much higher power than me,” ESPNcricinfo quoted New Zealand pacer, Lockie Ferguson as saying.
“Yeah just taking it in my stride but looking forward to playing cricket soon. So I’ll get back with the Aces boys tomorrow and see what the plan is going forward,” he added.
“Certainly got a few texts on Saturday but I was quick to announce that it was only a few cold symptoms and happy to be home now,” added Ferguson
“I just sort of had very, very mild cold symptoms and the procedures were as they were and followed by Tommy [Simsek, physio] and the support staff,” he added.
