Local football team, Bulawayo Chiefs, have sent a message of “hope and belief” to their friends in Italy, AS Roma.
Thousands have died of corona virus while others are infected in the European nation.
Maninja, as Chiefs are also known, took to Twitter to convey their message to the Rome team.
“Today we want to send a message of Hope and Belief to our friends in Italy and the rest of the World during the #coronavirus Pandemic. We are with you in prayers. #WeBelieve we will win this. Flatten the curve,” reads the post.
Earlier, the Bulawayo based side had shared the extent of the carnage wrecked thus far by the virus on humanity when they gave an update on the recent statistics.
They wrote, “CORONA IS REAL. Confirmed global coronavirus cases pass 1 million, after doubling in less than a week. USA has registered 236,339 of the one million cases, while Italy has the highest death toll. More than 51,000 people have died globally from coronavirus [Source @BBCBreaking].”
The Chiefs have been quite active in creating COVID 19 awareness and posting update on the pandemic.
In a previous post the Chief wrote, “Corona is Real: We Join the world in praying for a Solution. Number of coronavirus cases worldwide passes 900,000 as of 1 April 2020 [Source:@spectatorindex].”
As there is no on pitch activities, Bulawayo Chiefs seem to have been busy engaging fans with informative posts.
Last season when they were fighting relegation, most soccer fans hoped for their survival because they have brought a new dimension of entertainment to the Zimbabwean game through social media.
