Farrah Abraham is on the receiving end of major backlash once again with a video she posted to Instagram amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In the clip, the “Teen Mom OG” alum and her 11-year-old daughter, Sophia, are seen wearing a medical masks while holding paper towels and bottles of Lysol spray.
“Self #quartine ready go team! ??? #clean #Lysol #coronavirus,” the video was captioned.
Health officials have urged people who are not sick to save medical masks for those who need them. The masks do not benefit healthy people as the virus is not airborne.
People in the comments were outraged.
“They’ve already said many many times the masks are ONLY FOR THOSE WITH THE VIRUS! It’s not protecting you from anything,” one said.
“Disrespectful to the highest!!! Again making fun of something that is a serious thing just so they can make a s Spectable of themselves! Then claim bullying when people say something!!!” another wrote.
“You’ll get sick by wearing the mask. Doctors wear mask for their reasons of if they have something it keeps from getting to someone else so with you not being sick and having that on your face it can still get in there and you’ll get sick,” a third added.
“Not suppose to use the mask unless you’re sick. Stop using it for attention, its rude to real sick people,” someone else noted.
Earlier this month, Abraham came under fire for saying she loved “coronavirus season” in an Instagram post.
“Sophia has been online-schooled for a couple years now, and I wanted her to share some tips and tricks because I’ve kind of got it down beyond coronavirus times,” Abraham said. “Everything can be done from home and online. And I’m super pumped about that because I’m such a homebody and I kind of love coronavirus season.”
Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
