The world is on edge right now because of COVID-19, or what the public has decided to refer to as the Coronavirus. People are stocking up on food, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer. Events and schools are shutting down. Air travel has been suspended in many cases.
The CDC has asked the public to wash their hands constantly and to try not to touch their face as much as possible. While many seem to be taking this all very seriously, Kylie Jenner just up and ignored all of the rules.
Not only is Kylie such a rebel she’s willing to touch her face in the middle of a pandemic, but she also went about a thousand steps further and sucked on her finger in a recent Instagram photo.
Kylie posed inside her Kylie Cosmetics headquarters. Another interesting fact about the photo given how many companies have taken to remote work and sending employees home to minimize exposure. Looks like this Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has not caught on to the “social distancing” trend, yet.
While reality TV queen Kylie might not be that concerned with the CDC’s warnings, Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly taking steps to reduce exposure to the virus.
Royal experts have pointed out that the Queen of England has started wearing gloves more often, even to events where she usually doesn’t like investitures. The queen has also reportedly stopped shaking hands while at major events. Though she continues to hold meetings inside the palace, which has come as a surprise to some royal experts.
While the Queen of England is working to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, her grandson Prince William recently became the subject of criticism after joking about the pandemic.
The Duke of Cambridge made his first official visit to Ireland recently and decided to crack a few jokes about the virus. He indicated that many people likely assume they have it when it’s just a cough and then asked to be warned if he and Kate Middleton were spreading the virus around so they could stop.
Regardless of how some might be taking the pandemic, there have already been some real-world consequences. Because they travel and meet with so many people on a frequent basis, many celebrities — like Charles Barkley who is waiting for results — have been opting for testing.
Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson were recently tested only to learn of sad results. Both tested positive for the Coronavirus and are currently being held in quarantine in Australia. They have publicly thanked those caring and treating them.
