Apart from India, the UK has also declared a lockdown due to the deadly corona virus spreading from China. The lockdown has also affected the lives of the people and in this many people are collecting funds for the needy. John Griffin, a British runner, has taken a different approach and has climbed the height of Mount Everest in his home.
Do not be surprised, he did this by climbing the stairs in his house. It took Griffin 4 days and he walked 41 thousand steps to his three-story house. Griffin did this in his home in West Sussex.
