The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to play the remaining of the two ODIs between India and South Africa in front of empty stands. The decision has come after the outburst of the Coronavirus issue.

The Indian Sports Ministry had issued an advisory for all the National Sports Federations to “ensure that no public gathering takes place in any sporting event” in the country.

If the situation persists, the BCCI might have to hold the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the same manner.

Earlier, the BCCI had issued a statement that the medical team has been monitoring the Coronavirus situation and the players, support staff and state associations have been briefed about the WHO’s guidelines.

Here’s a list of Do’s and Don’ts
· washing hands with soap & water for a minimum of 20 seconds,

· use of hand sanitizers,

· covering mouth while sneezing or coughing,

· reporting to the medical team immediately in case of fever, cough or any illness,

The Corona Virus outburst has been rapidly increasing. After China, Italy became the second country that has been locked down. Apart from Italy, Spain, Germany, US, UK, Iran, South Korea and some more countries have been suffering from the outburst.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared COVID-19 disease to be a pandemic.
