Former BLACK SABBATH singer Tony Martin has blasted people who try to downplay the threat from the coronavirus that is responsible for a surging number of deaths worldwide.
Martin took to his social media to write:
“Can I just be serious for a moment … This virus thing is throwing up all kinds of irresponsible comments from people who think its brave and cool to stand up against the general global advice. …. Its not. …. I am sure those who don’t have venerable people in their family will come through it with little worry or care. But I have several vulnerable people in my family that would not survive …
“So I will not feel guilty for washing my hands more… I will not feel ashamed for cancelling shows … I will be happy to self isolate if I have to … I will always put the welfare of those I connect with first because if I help to kill the f*ckers off there will be no one left to connect with!!! ….
“The sooner we get this thing beaten the sooner we can get back to touring recording writing and hanging out….. Love ya’ll …. Lets be sensible about this.”
