Blackcaps skipper Kane Williamson penned an honest and powerful open letter to the frontline medical staff of New Zealand as they prepare to fight the spread of coronavirus.

The coronavirus outbreak has already caused mayhem worldwide and has led to sports events being suspended everywhere. Many cricketers have taken up the decision to raise awareness via various social media platforms, while spending their time off with their families in isolation.

Addressing the letter to all doctors, nurses and caregivers across the country, Williamson began,

"Events of the past few days have made it clear we're living through a health crisis the likes of which we've never seen. There will no doubt be times in the coming days when the scale of what we're facing will seem overwhelming. We're so grateful you have our backs."

Williamson then made an heart-felt remark that despite the pressure that sportsmen or women face, they just play games. He praise those who work selflessly during such circumstances. He said that they are the people who face real pressure and praise them for their effort and  ability to put the greater good ahead of everything else.

"People talk about the pressure sportsmen and women are under to perform, but the truth is we get to do something we love every day for a living. We play games."

"Real pressure is working to save lives. Real pressure is going into work each day while putting your own personal safety on the line for the good of others."

"Every day over the next weeks and months you and your colleagues will be asked to do that."

"It's an enormous responsibility that can only be carried out by the best kind of people: those who put the greater good ahead of all else."

The Blackcaps captain finished his great message by sharing his own experience of having an entire country supporting you. Williamson reassured them that the whole country is behind them and and ends his message by showing them his gratitude.

"As Blackcaps, we know how amazing it feels to have the support of a country behind you. In that same vein, we need you to know you're not alone. We want you to know that there's a whole country behind you.

"We will get through this and you are a big reason why. On behalf of a grateful country, thank you."
