Cristiano Ronaldo will convert all of his hotels in Portugal into temporary hospitals to help the fight against the Coronavirus. Cristiano Ronaldo is currently at his home in Madeira, Portugal, helping care for his infected mother.
The generous Juventus star will also personally foot the bills and wages of doctors and nurses working within them so as not to burden the country’s health service.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, these hotels will be adapted to aid the global fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. The facilities will be free of charge to anyone suffering from the Coronavirus.
The 35-year-old went into quarantine last week after Juventus team-mate Daniele Rugani tested positive for the virus that has killed nearly 1,500 people in Italy.
Ronaldo is completing his isolation in Madeira so he can be close to his mother, Dolores Aveira, who is recovering from a stroke.
Strict travel restrictions mean that Ronaldo cannot return to Italy for the time being and Juventus have placed 121 players and staff into isolation anyway.
