The post comes a week after McGregor caused controversy on social media by announcing that his aunt had died, with the athlete blasting coronavirus. “I couldn’t go live anymore. My poor little friendly loving auntie. This stupid f**king virus. What the f**k is happening”. Days later, McGregor said that his aunt was not a victim of the infectious disease and died due to another medical issue.

McGregor’s native country of Ireland has been hit by the outbreak, with almost 700 confirmed cases and three deaths. Authorities have urged people to stay at home and announced the closure of schools, universities, gyms, and other public places.

On his social media accounts, McGregor called on people to follow the World Health Organisation's rules by practicing social distancing and maintaining personal hygiene.

"Everyone should stay vigilant, isolated and safe with their families at home. People should not think for a second that it won’t affect them and put their guard down. Hand hygiene is key", McGregor recently said in an interview with the magazine Maxim.
