Kendall Jenner‘s social media isn’t setting out to cure the novel coronavirus – then again, with the 24-year-old appearing in promo for Scott Disick’s $129 “PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS” hoodies, the supermodel hasn’t completely been steering clear of the buzz centering around COVID-19.
Kendall took to her Instagram stories on Saturday with a quick video – it was a repost from close friend Fai Khadra. The free-spirited outdoor footage ticked boxes for showing off Kendall’s sensational bikini body and carefree vibes – if you’re stuck home, in self-isolation (and happen to be a Kendall fan), it’s also probably not the worst thing you can watch.
Kendall’s first coronavirus-related photo came last week as 36-year-old Scott Disick’s Talentless clothing line dropped its coronavirus 2020 merch. The hoodies that retail for up to $129 received a boost from Kendall and “momager” Kris Jenner as the two were photographed from the back while modeling the merch.
Kendall’s latest video was very much hoodie-free. It showed the Adidas spokesperson freely biking in a tiny rust-colored bikini top and jeans on what appeared to be a motor-aided two-wheeler, turning around briefly to face the camera from under a baseball cap.

Kendall wound up in the news recently for being called out – Italian blogger, designer, and influencer Chiara Ferragni took to social media to slam high-profile celebrities for either making light of (or not taking) coronavirus seriously.
She stated that celebs should not “underestimate the problem and spread the wrong message.”
“For people who have such a huge voice, like Kendall Jenner, please don’t underestimate the problem. This is like a serious problem. It’s in my country and it’s going to be in so many different countries right now, so please say what is right and raise awareness,” Chiara added.
There are now over 2,600 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S.
Meanwhile, it’s been more intense over in 39-year-old Kim Kardashian’s household. The KKW Beauty founder made headlines recently for calling a doctor to her Calabasas mansion after 35-year-old sister Khloe coughed – Kim then filmed her doctor in her home as she sanitized a toy for daughter North West, with the star also finding herself mildly slammed for stating that elbows are an area that people “cough” into.
Just this weekend, though, Kim melted hearts as she showed a “quarantined” playhouse that eldest daughter North made – complete with doll figurines to represent mom Kim and dad Kanye West.
The celebrity world is now officially hit. Alongside NBA players Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, 63-year-old actor Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have confirmed that they’ve tested positive for coronavirus. The “Cast Away” actor made his announcement on Instagram and is currently in isolation with Rita.
“Hello, folks. @ritawilson and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” Tom wrote, adding:
“Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?”
