The COVID-19 outbreak has led to cancellation of not only MMA events but all major events across the globe. The pandemic has led to world on a stand still. There’s nothing much we can do except social distancing. There’s one MMA superstar who has decided to promote this important aspect. Former double champ and Irish sensation, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor.
Social distancing refers to staying in isolation (staying at home) to minimize interactions with each other. With no vaccine for the pandemic and only symptomatic treatment available, social distancing is only we can do.
McGregor used his stardom as a platform to promote this crucial aspect. He shared a footage of him celebrating St. Patrick’s Day last year with a huge gathering of people. Obviously that won’t be the case this year, he motivated Ireland and whole world that it’ll get back just fine. (via Instagram):
Quick reminder to stay vigilant with our quarantine efforts, team Ireland!
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!
The UFC had earlier promised to carry out all events however under closed doors. The UFC Brasilia card last weekend took place according to plan with no audience. Later on due to continued rising cases of COVID-19, the UFC had to shift their events to UFC Apex where the Ultimate Fighter bouts take place. But eventually the plan got scrapped.
