Coronavirus pandemic is making things difficult for cancer patients: Salim Merchant

Talking about the coronavirus pandemic, music composer Salim Merchant said it's making things difficult for cancer patients, doctors and nurses. "I really hope and pray that the pandemic slows down or vanishes because cancer patients who're already suffering will need to be rescued," he added. "I am praying that they don't catch the infection because they are immunocompromised," Salim said.
