Williamson lauds respecsto medical staff who’s treating coronavirus patients
The coronavirus issue is turning into a big world crisis as it keeps on taking lives and spreading all over the world. While almost every country has announced a lockdown, there is no escape for the doctors and the medical staff, who are threating the coronavirus patients and saving lives.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson hailed them with respect and insisted that they have their full support with them.
“Events of the past few days have made it clear we’re living through a health crisis the likes of which we’ve never seen. There will no doubt be times in the coming days when the scale of what we’re facing will seem overwhelming,” he said.
The Kiwi captain also said that it is the health care workers who know the real meaning of what pressure feels like as they are putting their lives in danger to save others.
“We’re so grateful you have our backs. People talk about the pressure sportsmen and women are under to perform, but the truth is we get to do something we love every day for a living. We play games. Real pressure is working to save lives. Real pressure is going into work each day while putting your own personal safety on the line for the good of others,” he added.
In New Zealand, so far 262 coronavirus cases have been reported. Globally, 4.62,800 people have contracted the deadly virus that has left 20,922 dead.
Williamson ended the note with a beautiful message saying the whole country is behind them in this difficult situation.
“In that same vein, we need you to know you’re not alone. We want you to know that there’s a whole country behind you. We will get through this and you are a big reason why,” he signed off,” he concluded.
