Former UFC champion Conor McGregor has called for a complete lockdown of Ireland in light of the on-going Coronavirus crisis.
McGregor posted a passionate video on his Instagram page where he highlighted the dangers of the situations. Although Schools, universities and pubs are currently closed in Ireland due to Coronavirus, there are still many restrictions that are not imposed in the country.
“I would like to say while we are all currently debating a full lockdown, I feel that we must. Any time debating this is needless time from the clock. I know a good, tough fight when I see one and we have one on our hands now. I want to call upon my people — the great people of Ireland — this fight needs us all,” McGregor noted (via MMA fighting).
He also suggested that airports and all non-essential businesses should be closed down and passed on some heart-warming words to the Irish citizen.
“A lockdown together. A lockdown united. We must close our airports. We must close all non-essential business. We must cut all non-essential travel. Commissioner [Drew] Harris and Vice Admiral [Mark] Mellett, we must prepare and deploy our units to any and all and any known built-up areas across our country. Now President [Michael] Higgins, you must give these great men and women the power to enforce this task if necessary. Ireland, we have got this. Not only do we have the formula, we have it ahead of time. Let’s go Ireland. Let’s go rest of the world. A lockdown united. Together we stand. God bless us all,” Conor added (via MMA fighting).
