US Surgeon General Jerome Adams Calls On Kylie Jenner to Help Fight Coronavirus
America’s top doctor called on beauty mogul/reality TV star Kylie Jenner to help save the nation from coronavirus.
“What I really think we need to do [is] get our influencers,” Surgeon General Jerome Adams said on “Good Morning America. 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 to teenagers like his own kids — ages 14 and 15 — that “the more I tell them not to do something, the more they want to do it.”
“We are seeing new data from Italy that suggests that young people may be at higher risk than what we previously thought,” he said. “But think about your grandfather, think about your grandmother, think about the fact you’re spreading disease that could ultimately be what kills them,” he told the morning show.
