Less than 24 hours after the U.S. Surgeon General requested that she use her influence to convince her young fans to take the coronavirus outbreak seriously, Kylie Jenner took his advice. Posting on social media, Kylie spoke in a series of videos urging her fans to practice social distancing to curb the spread of the virus.
As we previously reported, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams recently urged Kylie Jenner to use her considerable influence to help young people understand just how serious the worldwide coronavirus outbreak is.
While speaking during an interview on “Good Morning America” he said this:
“We need to get Kylie Jenner and social media influencers out there, in helping folks understand that look, this is serious, this is absolutely serious. People are dying.”
Kylie followed up his request by telling her Instagram followers:
“The coronavirus is a real thing. I listened to the Surgeon General this morning…Even though I’ve already been doing my daily reminders, he definitely encouraged me to come on here and talk to you guys so you can see me and hear me.”
She continued, adding:
“Practice social distancing, self-quarantine. If you live with your parents, you don’t want to go home [and] get your parents sick. You might have it and not even know and be affecting other people. It’s serious, and the only way that we’re going to slow this down is if we do this—since there’s not a cure right now. Nobody is immune to this, millennials are not immune to this.”
Kylie’s message comes just after California has been officially placed on a “stay in place” order requiring all residents who don’t work in essential industries to remain inside their homes.
