Messi invites fans to stay at home
The coronavirus crisis is hitting Spain hard and the health recommendations are clear. You have to stay indoors unless it's necessary. Messi agrees with it and wanted to make raise mass awareness on an Instagram post.
"These are difficult days for everyone. We are concerned about what is happening and we want to help by putting ourselves in the place of those who are having the worst time, either because it directly affected them or their families and friends, or because they are working on the front lines to combat it in hospitals and health centres. I want to send a lot of strength to all of them", the Argentine wrote.
"Health must always come first. This is an exceptional time and the instructions of both health organisations and public authorities must be followed. Only in this way can we fight it effectively", the message continued.
And he left a very clear request to his fans: "It's time to be responsible and stay at home, plus it's perfect for enjoying that time with your loved ones that you can't always have. A hug and hopefully we can turn this situation around as soon as possible".
