Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor shared the sad news that his aunt died of coronavirus.
The former champion of UFC in two weight categories started with the Foreword, urging everyone to protect their health and maintain good personal hygiene.
“Good habits that we acquire as a result of this virus in the future will make us stronger. Hand hygiene, face and overall compliance with all hygiene standards. What we really must do everything in any case. I always comply with hand hygiene, but I think is not enough, especially given the endless casual handshake. I often hear people say to me: “Please, I do not have to be photographed with you, just let me shake your hand”. And I was like, “Yeah, man, thanks,” believing that it is much easier and faster than to take pictures. However, it is a careless attitude to their own health. And this happens too often. Also, I bring a hand to face, not knowing how often I do it. But now it’s all in the past.
I am so trained that I may have low immunity. It is inevitable, given the intensity of training at this level. In any case, check the status of your immune system. I could not bathe, because the maximum that you can catch is a cold and the flu. Anyway, now I feel bulletproof!
Be vigilant about personal hygiene and personal space. Be with us, God.” — posted by Conor on Instagram
McGregor further describes the situation directly around the death of an aunt from the coronavirus:
“These pictures were taken a few days ago in one of the studios in the center of Dublin. I was going to announce to the world about the large donation that was made by my company “Proper No. Twelve”. A great day that you can be proud of! Then I brought to the Studio her whole family. Remember sitting in the chair, preparing to go live with all the morning TV shows in the US, and at that moment I received a phone call with the message about the death of my wonderful aunt Ann. The live broadcast had to be canceled.
My poor, friendly and favorite aunt. The sister of my mother. This stupid fucking virus! What the fuck is going on? I took my family to the island bull, enjoyed the sea and took a deep breath. Thank you, Lord!
People hold on tight to each other! We are all that we have. Rest in peace, Anne Moore. I love you,” — said the fighter.
Ireland you amazing, amazing country. I believe we have this virus contained. And through this containment, we actually may have gone and contained them all.
The good habits we will have now gained from this wild covid-2019 attack will see us too strong in the future. Hand hygiene. Touching of own face hygiene. Consistent thorough cleaning of handled areas hygiene. What we should really be all doing anyway. I have always been on with my hand hygiene. But not enough. If I think of all the people approaching to shake hands and whatnot. I often get people to say to me please I don’t want a picture, just let me shake your hand. And I’m like yes friend thank you. As it’s more efficient than taking a full picture. But it’s too careless. And too frequent. Touching my own hand to my face as well. Too unaware of the frequency I’d do it. Until now. I’d train my ass off, to the point of low immunity. It’s inevitable with the intensity of the training. The immune system will be tested. I would float around in this manner, and always end up catching little colds and flu. I feel bulletproof right now though! I’m switched on like a motherfucker now.
Stay vigilant on our personal hygiene people. And our personal space.
God speed to us all ❤️ We are not there yet but we are well on our way. On our way in a big way! To the people of the world. We will do this! We are doing this! It’s done. We did it. Congratulations! Oh And it’s summertime now too. Wow! Oh, and Who am I fighting.
These photos are from a few days ago at a studio in Dublin’s City center. I was to announce to the world my @properwhiskey donation to @Tunnel2Towers. A great day! A proud day, I brought my family with me to the studio. Sitting in the chair about to beam live to all the U.S morning talk shows, I get a phone call telling me that my lovely little auntie Anne had passed away. I couldn’t go live anymore. My poor little friendly loving auntie. My mother’s sister. This stupid fucking virus. What the fuck is happening. I took my family to bull island. Looked out at the sea. Took a deep breath. Thank fuck! Lord thank you ?
Stay tight people! We are all we got ❤️ Rest in Peace Anne Moore I love you
