Sharing a video of him reciting the poem, he wrote, “Concerned about the COVID 19 .. just doodled some lines .. in verse .. please stay safe.”

In the poem, he talks about people suggesting various remedies to stay safe from the virus, ranging from washing one’s hands to drinking gooseberry juice.

Recently, actor Parineeti Chopra also cautioned people not to take the virus lightly and shrug the pandemic off.

She shared screenshots of a post by one Cristina Higgins, wherein the woman recounted her experience from Italy. “I am writing to you from Bergamo, Italy, at the heart of the coronavirus crisis. The news media in the US has not captured the severity of what is happening here. I am writing this post because each of you, today, not the government, not the school district, not the mayor, each individual citizen has the chance today to take actions that will deter the Italian situation from becoming your own country’s reality,” the woman wrote, warning everyone to take coronavirus seriously.
