There have been videos of song and dance that have emerged from Covid-19 quarantine centres, but a new video on social media shows a group of men playing cricket at one such facility. The undated video that was shared by National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Twitter has been viewed thousands of times since being posted.
In the video shared by Abdullah, a few men are seen playing cricket in a quarantine centre where other hospital beds are also visible. The men are seen playing cricket wearing masks and often sending the ball among the beds.
Sharing the clip on the micro-blogging site, the politician wrote, “Have space, will play. Quarantine time pass.”

While many praised the group’s love for sport, others thought it wasn’t a very responsible act given it could hurt people who were in beds. Some also questioned whether such activity could potentially increase the spread of the virus.
Here’s how people reacted.

Good for positivity. But they are creating disturbance to the other people lying on bed.

Same ball same bat will be touched by all. Some people don’t understand the meaning of quarantine. 🤦
