Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain, has said that a way to fight Coronavirus was to follow all the recommendations from the health and public authorities.
The Argentine captain also reiterated the thoughts of many and maintained that human life comes first before anything.
Messi, in a post on his official Instagram page on Saturday, said: “These are hard days for everyone globally. We are upset about the Coronavirus, and we want to help, putting ourselves in the position of those who are suffering the most, either because they are affected directly or their family or friends, or because they are working on the front line in the fight in hospitals and health centers and I want to send them all my support. Health has to come first.
“We have to follow all the recommendations from the health and public authorities. That is the sole way that we will fight it effectively.
“It’s time to be responsible and occupy home. Furthermore, it is a great chance to spend time with your loved ones, the time you do not always have.
“My best to everyone, and let us hope we can turn this situation around, the quicker, the better.”
Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has become a global problem with Europe now at the centre of the outbreak.
Primary sporting activities have now been put on hold in a bid to prevent the spread of the dreaded disease.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation, WHO, has since declared Coronavirus a global pandemic.
