A statement from the club concluded:

The club wishes a speedy recovery to all the sick and wants to convey its deepest thanks to all those who are playing an essential, exemplary and supportive role in the fight against COVID-19.

From Real Madrid, all our support and strength with the conviction that together we will undoubtedly overcome this difficult moment.
