Ronaldo is turning his hotels into hospitals

Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to transform his hotels into hospitals to help with the fight with the COVID-19 pandemic.


According to Marca, Pestana CR7 Hotels in Portugal will be transformed into hospitals, where people with COVID-19 will be treated free of charge.


Also the Portuguese superstar will be responsible for the payment of hospital facilities, bills and the salary of all the workers in the hospital, who will take care of the infected with the coronavirus.



Earlier this week Cristiano Ronaldo refused to travel back to Italy to join his teammates, instead he visited his mother who suffered a stroke in Madeira last week.


His decision was made after one of his teammates Daniele Rugani had tested positive for the COVID-19. The 35-year old Portuguese decided to isolate himself after he shared a dressing room with the infected player last Sunday when Juventus beat Inter Milan 2-0 behind closed doors.


A few days ago Cristiano posted a message on his social networks saying: " "The world is going through a very difficult moment which demands the utmost care and attention from all of us.


"I 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.



"It 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."


Meanwhile, the percentage of infected people increase day by day. Due to the coronavirus pandemic all sport events were suspended until further notice - The Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and every other competition were postponed until April 4 at earliest.
