On March 27, Tendulkar said in a statement on social media that he has contracted the widely-spreading virus and is quarantining at home. However, the 47-year-old has now been shifted to hospital on medical advice. Nevertheless, Tendulkar’s health condition doesn’t seem too severe as he expects to go back home within few days.
