�We�re A Hotel, Not A Hospital,� Ronaldo�s Hotel Denies Turning Into COVID-19 Help Center



On Sunday, news broke out that the hotels owned by Juventus Forward and all time legend Cristiano Ronaldo will be turning into hospitals where people who are infected with the contagious coronavirus can seek help. 

According to the Spanish publication, Marca, all CR7 hotels were to be converted into COVID-19 help centres which could be used free of charge with the cost of medication and staff members being incurred by the Portuguese star himself.

However, Ronaldo's hotel in Lisbon has denied the reports while also mentioning that they have not been briefed about anything of this matter.

According to goal.com, the spokesperson from the hotel said: âWe are a hotel. We are not going to be a hospital. It is a day like everyone else, we are and will remain a hotel. We are being phoned by the press. I wish you a nice day.â 

Marca have deleted the fake news of Cristiano Ronaldo turning his hotels in Portugal to hospitals.
This is not the first time that we have seen fake news of the Portuguese's kind & humane gestures.
What's embarassing is that he could have stopped his PR team from doing this... pic.twitter.com/TbD03TwQIv

Despite the rumours regarding the CR7 hotels going viral, a Portugal journalist, Filipe Caetano, on Sunday said the information posted 'is not true' and requested the people in need to not fall for such fake news. 

Ronaldoâs home country has had more than 200 confirmed cases of people infected with the disease, while the athlete himself has been in quarantine in Madeira upon the revelation that his Juventus teammate Daniele Rugani has been tested positive.

The 35-year-old was quick to send a message of support to fans: 

âThe world is going through a very difficult moment which demands the utmost care and attention from all of us,â Ronaldo wrote in a post on social media.

âI speak to you today not as a football player, but as a son, father, a human being concerned with the latest developments that is affecting the whole world.

âIt is important we all follow the advice of WHO (World Health Organization) and the governing bodies on how we handle this current situation. Protecting human life must come above any other interests.

âI would like to send my thoughts to everyone who has lost someone close to them, my solidarity to those who are fighting the virus, like my team-mate Daniele Rugani, and my continued support to the amazing health professionals putting their own lives at risk to save others.â

So far, the total number of positive cases has crossed over 1,70,000 worldwide with over 6,500 deaths.
