People all over the world have been taking precautionary measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19. They are avoiding travel and putting themselves in self-isolation in an attempt to keep themselves and the people around them safe from the virus. And, joining the parade of people taking these steps is David Lloyd who recently came out and spoke about the measures he himself is taking to avoid the spreading of the Coronavirus.

David, also known as ‘Bumble’ is a part of the best of cricketers the world has ever seen. Though he played only 17 international matches in which his highest score was 214 not out, his First-Class cricket numbers show his true talent. Even with the ball, his numbers were equally good. He had 237 wickets to his name, with his best bowling figures in an inning being, 7 wickets for just 38 runs.

In a column that he wrote for the DailyMail, David opened up about the precautionary measures that he will be taking to avoid the virus. He told, that he was going to spend his 73rd birthday in Galle while preparing himself for commentating in England’s first Test match of the series against Sri Lanka, but owing to the global outbreak of the deadly virus, he will be self-isolating at his home in Cheshire. He’s celebrating his 73rd birthday on the 18th of March.

‘All I’d say is we all must put our health first and ride it through,’ says David Lloyd

He said, “I’m fit as a fiddle. It’s just that I’m a cricket commentator, not a medical expert – so if I’m told I’ve got to stay at home because of my age, I have to adhere to that.”

Bumble also added that his stay at home also gave him time to see through what was going on social media, especially the most active platform of all Twitter. In the end, he gave his best wishes to everyone and in his typical fashion, asked everyone to stay strong, and safe, but most importantly try to smile even in these tough times.

And, it is nothing but true that even in these times we have to take care of ourselves, but also maintain a smile on our faces, that can give someone, a ray of confidence that he or she too can get through with ease.
