Home / Bollywood / ‘All this because someone wanted to eat a bat’: Emraan Hashmi on coronavirus outbreak

While there is no scientific evidence yet to prove the coronavirus was first transmitted from a bat to a person who might have consumed the animal, actor Emraan Hashmi made such a case in his latest tweet with mock conviction.

“And all this because some person thousands of miles away wanted to have a freakish culinary experience like eating a BAT,” tweeted @emraan hashmi, venting ire on someone in the faraway Chinese city of Wuhan who might have consumed an infected bat to contract COVID-19, and then pass it on to others, thereby planting the seed of the ongoing global pandemic.

At the last count, over half a million coronavirus cases have been confirmed worldwide, with more than 22,000 deaths. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared a 21-day national lockdown to stem the spread of the virus.

Emraan had earlier slammed people who took to the streets to play drums and celebrate at 5pm on Sunday. He wrote on Twitter, “With the current outbreak hope everyone is safe and tucked away in their homes. Please travel or venture out only if you really need to. How we discipline ourselves will dictate how well we can control this pandemic. There will be enough time to dance on the streets.. Take care.”
