Mashrafe tests negative for coronavirus
After more than three weeks, Bangladesh’s former ODI captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza has won the battle with coronavirus. The fast bowler himself confirmed the news on Tuesday night on his official facebook page.
“I hope you all are fine. Alhamdulillah. With the blessings of Allah and all of your prayers, I have been tested negative for coronavirus. I came to know about the result tonight. I thank all the people who took care of me, tried to keep in touch with me and prayed for me during this difficult time,” Mashrafe said on facebook.
However, he also said that his wife is yet to recover from the virus despite being two weeks.
“My wife’s report came positive despite being two weeks. But she is doing fine due to all of your prayers. I seek prayers for her. I recovered from this virus staying at home and taking proper treatment. Those who are affected with the virus, please stay careful and take the necessary treatment. We have to battle against this virus together. May Allah keep all of us safe,” he concluded.
Earlier, former Bangladesh batsman Nafees Iqbal and current spin bowler Nazmul Hossain Apu also recovered from the virus.
