For those who still don’t believe this as serious as they say, let us break it down.

After shutting down travel across the world, canceling the NBA and countless festivals and conferences, forcing employers to implement work from home policies and ripping apart our economy, coronavirus is not a game. According to WorldOMeter.com, as of March 20, the coronavirus is on a world pandemic level with more than 255,000 people infected (14,350 in the U.S.) and the virus killing nearly 10,500 people worldwide, including more than 217 in the U.S.

It’s important to continue to stay inside, be safe and ONLY leave the house if it’s absolutely necessary. That, and keep washing and moisturizing your hands.

Stay safe BEAUTIES!
