Coronavirus outbreak has turned out to be a global concern. Countries worst affected by the pandemic are being put under lockdowns. The situation in India too has been tense what with the number of COVID-19 positive cases on the rise. As of now, a total of 206 individuals have been confirmed positive with coronavirus in India. In the current climate, it has been advised to stay indoors and several celebrities are also practising 'self-isolation'and have also urged fans to do the same. While the atmosphere remains tense, Marvel India sure decided to give us a reason to smile with their recent post about channelling in our own Steve Rogers aka Captain America. Tom Hanks, Idris Elba, Olga Kurylenko - List Of Celebrities Who Have Tested Positive For Coronavirus.
Confused why Captain America? Remember how the cap survived despite being frozen for almost 70 years well, for us it's just a couple of weeks of 'isolation' and not 'ice-olation' so it's manageable. The Marvel India social media handles shared the amazing tweet saying, "If Steve Rogers can stay in ice-olation for 70 years, you can stay indoors too. Stay safe and be your own superhero." We have to say that's great advice!
