While many people out there are concerned about the coronavirus, Joe Giudice, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, is not. In fact, Joe recently took to his social media to say that everything was fine and he was going to be alright, despite living in Europe’s most afflicted country.
According to Hollywood Life, Joe took to his IG account earlier this week to say that he would always be there for his daughters, coronavirus or not. On the 14th of March, Joe shared a post for his four daughters with Teresa Giudice, including Audriana, Gabriella, Milania, and Gia.
Reportedly, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who was recently deported back to his native Italy after being incarcerated on fraud charges, shared a video clip in which he and his four daughters were having ice cream together.
Joe wrote in the caption, “to my babies, you’re not alone (Daddy is always here).” As followers of the news media know, Italy is currently the most locked-down country in Europe at the moment, after the government confirmed many cases and death.

On the 10th of March, Joe shared a post on his account showing that the area he had been living in was practically a ghost town. He explained that the whole ordeal was “ridiculous.” Joe said two days later that the city had shut down everything, including cafés and grocers.
Reportedly, there are 1,200 people dead in Italy from the coronavirus and another 17,000 cases. According to the CDC, the death rate of the coronavirus currently sits around 0.2% for people between the ages of 20 and 29.
However, people with pre-existing conditions as well as the elderly are at considerably higher risk, similar to regular influenza that kills thousands of Americans every year. Regardless of the severity, measures have been taken globally to thwart the spread of the virus.
This past week, even Donald Trump canceled several campaign rallies, which have been one of the most crucial aspects of his run for the president.
