Celebrities wear masks to stop the coronavirus [Updated]
The outbreak of COVID-19 (also known as the coronavirus) has affected just about everything and everyone, even that which the world holds most dear: our celebrities.
There are travel restrictions now in place, including outright bands on visiting countries such as China, Hong Kong, Thailand and the Philippines. Global economies are in freefall, and now even the world’s most famous faces feel the need to cover them up, to protect themselves from the spread of the virus.
Hollywood is not immune to the effects of the coronavirus. Films such as No Time to Die and Mulan have been pushed back (although some people such as Vin Diesel don’t fear things like COVID-19), and celebrities have taken measure to protect themselves from the outbreak.
Many of some of the world’s most famous people have taken precautions such as wearing latex gloves and masks while outside their homes.
