Many actors and celebrities have extended support in these trying times. Earlier Kannada actor Arjun Gowda became an ambulance driver to help COVID-19 patients.
Various Bollywood celebrities like Sonu Sood, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Ayushmann Khurrana and others have also made donations and raised resources for COVID patients.
India on Sunday (May 2) has reported 3689 COVID patients deaths, 3.92 lakh fresh cases.
