Sports activities in the country were halted on March 17 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The president says that he has been satisfied with the trend of the virus in the country.

“Even Members of Parliament love sports because it helps in building immunity in the human body. And I am not sure whether there is any athlete, who has been infected by the coronavirus,

The head of the state has also directed sports and health ministries as well as other authorities to set guidelines on how fans should be involved while taking all the necessary health precautions.
