Surgeon General Jerome Adams is now pleading with superstar Kylie Jenner to use her influence among young people to convince them to stay home and not attend activities like Spring Break parties over fears they will become infected with the Coronavirus and then spread it to more vulnerable populations.
As The New York Post reports:
America’s top doctor called on an unexpected hero to help save the nation from coronavirus — Kylie Jenner.
“What I really think we need to do [is] get our influencers,” Surgeon General Jerome Adams said on “Good Morning America,” naming the 22-year-old “Keeping up with the Kardashians” star as well as infected basketball stars Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell.
“We need to get Kylie Jenner and social media influencers out there, in helping folks understand that look, this is serious, this is absolutely serious. People are dying,” Adams told the ABC show.
He said they were needed to get the message across because he knows from his own kids — aged 14 and 15 — that “the more I tell them not to do something, the more they want to do it.”
Hopefully Jenner and other ‘influencers’ will be able to convince, at least some, millenials to stay home, otherwise it may be their parents and grandparents. That end up paying the price for it.
