Draupadi says to Arjuna -

मत्स्यं मा विद्ध्य कोन्तेय भविता न स्वयंवर: ।
कोरोनानिर्गमादूर्ध्वं पुनरायाहि सत्वरम् ।।

O Arjuna, don’t shoot the fish [with your arrow, to prove that you are the
best archer], since the ceremony of choosing the groom will not be
happening. After the Coronavirus goes away, please come back quickly.
