Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has offered the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium (RGIC) here for setting up a quarantine centre in wake of the COVID-19 outbreak to accommodate people who have been advised isolation.

"This (offering the stadium), we feel is the moral obligation on our part in this hour of crisis as there are 40 big rooms which can take care of some of the virus-affected patients," the HCA said in a press release.

 

"With a lot of parking space, we feel it would be appropriate on our behalf to make this token gesture of appreciation of your (Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao) efforts," it said.

RGIC is the principal cricket ground in Hyderabad and is the home ground of the HCA.
