Pop star Rita Ora has apologized a second time after it was revealed that she was ignoring Covid’s rules.
Last month, the singer apologized for her “impulse” decision to attend a birthday party that violated coronavirus rules.
The singer admitted to a “small gathering” with friends to celebrate her 30th birthday and said it was an “inexcusable error of judgment.”
Clearly, Ms. Ora volunteered to pay a fine imposed as a result of her actions.
But it seems the party wasn’t the only rule she was willing to break, as it has now been revealed that she had flown a private jet to Cairo, Egypt on Nov. 21 to perform at the five-star W Hotel, and not herself – isolate on her return to the UK a day later, according to the Mirror.
Under current government regulations, she should have quarantined herself for 14 days when she got home.
But instead, Rita was spotted at the Casa Cruz restaurant in Notting Hill in London on Nov. 28, holding her big birthday party during the second nationwide lockdown in England.
After the last revelation by the Mail on Sunday of her second fate of breaking lockdown rules, Rita is forced to apologize again.
In a statement, she told the publication, “I recently flew to Egypt to perform at a corporate event for a private company, where my tour group followed protocol and presented negative Covid tests upon entry, as required by Egyptian authorities.
“On my return to Britain I should have followed the government’s advice and isolated myself for the required period. As you know, I have not followed the government’s advice and … I apologize again without reservation.
“While I realize that a pop star’s apologetic words may not carry much weight, especially from someone who has broken the rules like me, I realize that some might try to follow my lead.
“My message to them is simple: don’t do it. The guilt and shame I’ve carried this week for my mistake is not worth it. Instead, continue to listen to the government advice and the voices of the NHS heroes and take the necessary precautions.
“I hope one day to make up with the public who have given me so much support over the years and, in particular, to make up with the heroes of the NHS … In the meantime, I will make my contribution donate to charity from Egypt.
“Be better than me and learn from my mistakes, so you don’t have to learn the hard way yourself.
Downing Street previously emphasized that the coronavirus rules apply to celebrities like everyone else and that enforcement is a matter for the police.
After the Ritual singer apologized for the violation of her birthday party, the prime minister’s official spokesperson said: “It is important that everyone in society leads by example by following the rules – that’s for every member of the public. , including celebrities. “
“During the pandemic, we made it clear that it is critical for everyone to obey the rules to suppress the virus and reduce transmission, but enforcement is a matter for the police.
“The Prime Minister has made it clear that everyone across the country must continue to follow the rules to reduce the transmission of the virus, but it is up to the police to decide what action to take.”
