The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit India hard with the number of cases reportedly increasing day by day. While the number of increasing cases in India has not taken a dip, Mumbai coronavirus cases have suddenly declined with media reports stating that the city recorded its lowest number of cases on Sunday. As per the report published by Livemint, the Mumbai Coronavirus cases on Sunday stood at 6,27,651, while active cases rose to 75,740.


While all the healthcare officials are working hard towards lowering COVID-19, sports teams have also come forward to help people during such tough circumstances. Recently, two Mumbai based sports teams i.e Indian Super League champions Mumbai City FC and Pro Kabaddi team U Mumba joined hands to help the needy during the COVID-19 situation.

Apart from the above-mentioned teams, current IPL champions have also tweeted about showing their support towards the fight against COVID-19. While the IPL 2021 is still being played despite the rising number of coronavirus cases, Mumbai Indians in their tweet have written about doing their bit to get the word out for as many COVID-19 related needs across India, asking fans to use #BlueHeart in their tweets.

 

Not only the teams but players too have come forward and spread the message about wearing a mask during the Coronavirus situation.

Cummins also urged other IPL players to help India tackle the current situation with their donations.
