Olivia Newton-John Encourages People To Make Their Own Face Masks During Coronavirus Pandemic
Olivia Newton-John is the latest celebrity to promote the wearing of face masks after the CDC encouraged all Americans to wear the protective coverings. Though Olivia isn't in the United States, her message is resonating with Americans as Donald Trump defiantly announced he wouldn't wear one, despite the Coronavirus pandemic, while his wife, First Lady Melania Trump also encouraged the public to take the CDC's warning seriously. Right now, people around the world are practicing social distancing to stop the spread of Coronavirus and flatten the curve. Death rates have soared in the United States, which leads the world in the most Covid-19 infections.
As of Sunday, April 5, 2020, there have been 330,386 Coronavirus cases in the United States with 9,448 deaths — the most of which have been in New York state. Though Coronavirus is a new virus and not much is known about it, it has been learned that the virus can be transmitted from person to person even if someone doesn't show symptoms. Because of the ease in which the virus can be transmitted, it is recommended that people protect themselves and others by wearing cloth masks.
Due to a shortage in the recommended N95 and surgical masks, it is advised that those are saved for health care workers.

This is of major importance for us all to know. We have been told we don’t need masks because health workers need them desperately and there arent enough for the general public too! Please pass this video on - let’s be creative and make our own- like the Czech Republic has- and thank you to Masks 4 All for sending this out to the world. We can flatten our curve too!! https://youtu.be/kY0ZNpwwsfw. #facemask #masks4all #covid
