31-aastane vabavõitleja sai kurvast uudisest teada hetked enne USA-s otsesaate külastamist. "Ma ei suutnud enam edasi elada. Minu väike armas sõbralik tädi. See loll viirus. Mis on toimumas?"

Väljaande RTE teatel on Iirimaal laupäevase seisuga enam kui 100 koroonaviirusesse nakatunut. Esimene surm seoses ohtliku viirusega saabus Iirimaal kolmapäeval, kui haigusele kaotas elu vanem naisterahvas.

McGregor lisas sotsiaalmeedia vahendusel, et tal endal on intensiivsete treeningute tõttu suurem oht haigestuda. "On selge, et minu treeningute intensiivsust arvestades on minu immuunsüsteem proovile pandud. Sellises seisundis olen pidevalt saanud väikseid külmetusi. Praegu tunnen end siiski kuulikindlalt."

Täiendatud kell 21.46:

"Tahan selgeks teha, et nüüdseks on kinnitatud, et mu tädi polnud koroonaviiruse ohver," kirjutas McGregor. "Samal ajal, kui me tema matusteks valmistume, tean, et paljud teist peavad selle viirusega võitlema. Palun teil kõigil teha see lisapingutus, et olla oma sõpradele ja perekonnale stressirohkel ajal toeks."

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-19 attack will see us too strong in 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 what not. I often get people 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 flus. I feel bullet proof 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 summer time now too. Wow! Oh and Who am I fighting. ... These photos are from a few days ago at a studio in Dublin’s City centre. 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
