Conor McGregor Calls For Irish Fans To Stay At Home During Coronavirus Crisis

Conor McGregor interview

Conor McGregor is clearly taking the ongoing coronavirus crisis very seriously and has taken to his Instagram page to plead with his Irish followers to do the same and not put themselves and others at risk by leaving their homes unnecessarily.

“Quick reminder to stay vigilant with our quarantine efforts, team Ireland!” McGregor wrote.

“We have seen a drop over the last 3 days in numbers of infected. From 191 cases on Thursday, March 19th (Our heaviest day to date) to a slight decrease of 126 the following day, Friday March 20th. To now today, Saturday March 21th, a total number of 102 new cases.

“These are encouraging drops each day buy we are still above 100 a day.

“With today being Saturday and the peak of our weekend, plus the fact we have received lower numbers each day, we will all feel tempted to get out and back to living our normal lives again. But now is the time we must remain most vigilant! Remain most vigilant and put this fully to bed. Otherwise we run the risk of going around in circles with these numbers until they hit a spike we then can’t contain.

“Stay tight Ireland! We will do this! Together in unity!

“God speed to everyone around the world fighting this virus. We fight it side by side! ☘️🌍🙏❤️ Team work makes the dream work, God bless!”
