New Delhi: Given the tremendous surge in coronavirus cases across the country over the last few weeks, Indian celebrities are using their social media reach to amplify crucial information related to the pandemic. Several personalities from the entertainment industry have been updating their online followers with details such as the availability of oxygen cylinders, medical facilities and food delivery options across the country. Actor John Abraham, too, has now stepped in and decided to dedicate all his social media accounts to fighting the COVID-19 battle. The actor announced this decision to his fans through a statement on Instagram.
In his statement, John said, “As a country, we are experiencing a very grim situation. With each passing minute, there are more and more people who are unable to procure oxygen, an ICU bed, a vaccine and sometimes even food. However, these trying times have also brought people together, to support, to make a difference and attend to needs.”
The 48-year-old further wrote, “Starting today, I will be handing over my social media accounts to NGOs we have partnered with across the country and all content posted on my handles will exclusively help connect those affected with the resources they require. It is time to extend ourselves to humanity and take measures to overcome this crisis.”
In his caption, he added, “Anything and everything to save lives and win this battle TOGETHER.” He also urged fans to stay indoors and be responsible for themselves, their family and the country.
