In an emergency situation because of the Coronavirus outbreak, Shane Warne’s gin brand ‘Seven Zero Eight’ is going to manufacture hand sanitizers.

Currently, more than 600 people in Australia have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The Australian Prime Minister has asked companies to help out the country with medical supplies.

In such a situation, Australia’s most successful Test bowler has come to the rescue as his company ‘Seven Zero Eight’ (named after his 708 Test wickets) will be manufacturing hand sanitizers in the country.

The cricketer has posted a screenshot of the press release on his Instagram handle. According to the post, he had commented, “This is a challenging time for Australians and we all need to do what we can to help our healthcare system combat this disease and save lives. I am happy SevenZeroEight has the ability to make this shift and encourage others to do the same.

Here is the post:


So proud of the team ! Bloody awesome guys - well done to all @708gin ❤️

Shane Warne is serving the nation in tough times. Australia had inflicted a lot of damage because of the bushfires about a couple of months ago and the cricketer had stood up then too. Warne had auctioned off his baggy green cap and donated all the money to the relief fund. The cap had earned $1,007,500 from a buyer.
