But in these challenging times, the biggest gift you can give me is to stay home and follow local lockdown rules.” He added, “Our country is at war with COVID-19. Our medical community and frontline workers are waging a selfless and tireless war. Many people have lost their loved ones and livelihoods. This is not a time for celebration. This is a time for showing our solidarity with those in need.”
