After recovering from the deadly virus COVID 19, former Pakistan cricketer Taufiq Umar urged people to take coronavirus seriously and try to build their immune systems. Two weeks ago the national junior selection committee member tested COVID positive after which he removed himself. Taufiq Umar announced on Friday that he had recovered from the virus following a recent test report which came as negative. Two first-class players in Pakistan have died earlier this week for the coronavirus including leg-spinner Riaz Sheik. Riaz Sheik, a leg-spinner who took 116 wickets in 43 matches, died at his home, and his family buried him in haste.
