#Coronavirus: Trevor Noah and other celebrities who are social distancing
Local and international celebrities have not left the responsibility of raising awareness about the coronavirus to governments. They are also using their star power to make an impact.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) encourages hygiene and social distancing, which is minimising contact with other people to prevent a possibility of contracting or spreading the virus.
Dr Mike Ryan warned during a recent WHO press conference that the virus can still spread in winter, not because of the temperature, but because of people congregating in social settings.
Here's how some celebs are addressing the impact of the virus and encouraging responsible action.
Arnold Schwarzenegger — Forget about restaurants and public gatherings
Dawn Thandeka King — Family first
Ariana Grande — Please act now
Trevor Noah — Tours postponed
Taylor Swift — Self-quarantining, a new way of life
