Tennis star Rodger Federer has pledged to donate over $1 million to help families who have been affected by the novel coronavirus in his native Switzerland.

Taking to Twitter, Federer said: "These are challenging times for everyone and no one should be left behind".

Portugal and Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes also came together to donate lifesaving equipment to Portuguese hospitals. Federer, a 20-times Grand Slam victor, is now recovering from a knee surgery he underwent last month and was targeting a return in June in time for Wimbledon.

More than 90 people have died from the disease with almost 9,000 positive cases in Switzerland. Mirka and I personally made a decision to donate one million Swiss francs to the most vulnerable families in Switzerland, "wrote the Swiss". The Swiss health ministry has said that 8,800 people tested positive and 86 people have lost their lives due to the respiratory infection.

Federer's message comes as the coronavirus pandemic has spread to 194 nations, infecting over 4 lakh people.

Our contribution is just the start.

"We must help families in need quickly and unbureaucratically", Federer wrote on social media.

The government had already ordered the closure of schools and all places of leisure, including restaurants, bars and non-food shops.
