The novel coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill. All marque sporting events across the world have been suspended at the moment. The COVID-19 has put the entire world into a lockdown. Schools, colleges, malls, theatres, gyms, offices have been shut down. Cricket has been massively affected by the coronavirus pandemic as all the international as well as domestic fixtures have been called off.
Recently, the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020), which had reached the business end of the tournament, was also called off. The decision was taken in the wake of an alarming rise in the number of coronavirus patients. There are more than 700 cases of the same found in Pakistan.
Looking at the ignorant attitude of Pakistani citizens, Shoaib Akhtar has lashed out at them for not taking the disease seriously. Shoaib Akhtar took to Twitter and posted a video where he has lambasted some of them for openly roaming around streets.

Shoaib Akhtar feels that some Pakistani people were celebrating as if public holidays have been declared. He added that this isn't a time to picnic. Shoaib Akhtar further said that all the videos he has made so far on the issue are solely for creating awareness. He also said that it was for their lives and to keep their families safe. Shoaib Akhtar was baffled by the attitude of Pakistan people and their attitude, saying he wasn't understanding what they were doing.
