The coronavirus pandemic is a few weeks away from hitting its peak in the UK but pressure has already been piling up on NHS workers. There is still no official update as to when the Premier League could return with contradicting reports emerging every other day. At such a time, the Premier League has taken an initiative to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 across the UK.
A host of Premier League stars such as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathan Ake, Marcos Alonso and Lukasz Fabianski feature in this video that was uploaded on the official social media handle of the English top flight on Sunday. The Premier League hotshots have urged football lovers to stay indoors in order to curb the coronavirus pandemic and 'flatten the curve'. As things stand, the UK is projected to have a huge spike of COVID-19 casualties in the coming weeks as the coronavirus pandemic picks up pace across Europe.
