Barcelona captain Lionel Messi paid tribute to health workers across the world amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Covid-19 has wreaked havoc globally, with over 114,240 deaths and greater than 1,853,150 confirmed instances.
The World Health week finished over the weekend, and six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi, a UNICEF ambassador, who has also donated a million dollars to fight the disease, said in an Instagram post that the health workers should be appreciated for all they do for pregnant women, children, elderly and Coronavirus patients.
“Yesterday the World Health Worker Week came to an end and, together with @unicef, I want to express my deepest gratitude for the work they do,” Messi wrote via Instagram on Sunday.
“Anonymous heroes who endure long days and nights away from their families, so that ours can be safe from #COVID19.
“For continuing, despite everything, their noble commitment to caring for pregnant women, and keeping children and adolescents protected. #YoMeQuedoEnCasa #StayAtHome #Unicef.”
