Conor McGregor has taken to his social media to react to the ever-growing coronavirus crisis, and to tell fans to remain as positive as possible as the pandemic continues.

McGregor made mention of new vigilance in hygiene the public should be taking, noting he’s now more aware than ever of his own immune system and how his training can affect it.

“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,” McGregor wrote. “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 whatnot. 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 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.”

In the post, McGregor shared a number of photos featuring himself, family and friends. He went on to reveal he’s recently suffered a personal loss.

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

Symptoms of Covid-19 are regular coughing, breathing issues and fever. If you’re displaying these symptoms, the advice is to self-quarantine for seven days. If your symptoms worsen, please seek medical advice.

If you’re not displaying symptoms, the best advice on how to avoid catching the coronavirus is to self-contain as much as possible, avoid public gatherings, wash your hands regularly and cover your mouth when coughing,
