When it comes to fighting for social causes, there are a few celebrities who never back down. Even from the cricket fraternity, some take immense pride in the same. In the same light, the cricketing couple of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma has time and again done the same.

The nation is currently going through the severe second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, with cases and deaths on record rise every day. Furthermore, the shortage of medical amenities, along with oxygen, has made the situation even worse. However, thanks to our frontline workers’ undying effort, things continue to be in spare control.

Consequently, it makes utmost sense to salute these heroes who continue to risk their lives to save their citizens. As a result, Virushka took to their social media to thank these COVID warriors.

Kohli shared a video thanking the frontline workers for their priceless efforts in saving precious Indian lives. “I have nothing but gratitude for all the healthcare and frontline workers; they put their lives at risk to save ours. For this, we are in awe of their spirit and dedication. I also want to thank all the people who came forward in such difficult times and helped each other in every possible way. India is grateful to have heroes like you. Jai Hind,” he wrote.
