World champion and Olympics silver medalist PV Sindhu knows what comes first and has prioritized life over sports strongly urging the nation and people to cooperate and make the 21-day national lockdown a 100 per cent success.
In an exclusive video interview with Republic TV, Sindhu said "I have been in self-quarantine for the last 14 days since I have returned from England. I am at home and doing well I am doing some sort of exercise at home. Yes, I do miss badminton but life comes first and this virus is really bad and getting worse and affecting people all over. I request all of you to stay at home and be with your family."
Sindhu appealed to the people and all sportspersons to maintain a social distance. "Please sanitize yourself, clean your hands regularly and stay safe. Take this very very seriously. Don't go out. Let's make this lockdown a 100 percent success. I am with our prime minister in his nationwide fight against coronavirus. Let's defeat this dreaded disease once for all," was her message to the nation.
