Rohit Sharma took to social media to thank Indian Oil Corporation Limited and its employees for ensuring that petroleum products, including LPG, are in abundance and that there is no shortage amid the 21-day lockdown period due to the global coronavirus outbreak. India had declared a complete nation-wide lockdown for the 21 days post-midnight March 23, 2020, to curb the community spread of COVID-19 pandemic across the country. Over 35 people have died while at least 1200 people have been confirmed to have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the country as India completes day 6 of the shutdown.
