Pakistan former opening batsman Taufeeq Umar has announced his recovery from the deadly COVID-19 and has said that he had to isolate himself in a room.

Umar said this on Friday that he had made a full recovery from the virus and his test has come negative.

“I would urge everyone to take care of themselves and take this Covid-19 seriously. Social distancing and safety measures are a must for everyone,” he said.
Umar, 38, who appeared in 44 Tests and 22 ODIs, said people should panic if they contract the virus.
“I isolated myself in a room for two weeks away from the children and elderly people in my family. I would say people should not be alarmed if they test positive. I would advise them to work on building up their immune system,” he said.

At least two Pakistani first-class players have died from the coronavirus with leg-spinner Riaz Sheikh passing away in Karachi earlier this week.
Riaz Sheikh, a leg-spinner who took 116 wickets in 43 matches, died at his home and was buried in haste by his family.
Another Pakistani first-class player, Zafar Sarfaraz, 50, had died due to the virus in April in Peshawar.
