Priyanka added further in the caption, “Guys, let’s make it our duty to donate to @WHO and stand in solidarity to help flatten the curve (link is up in my bio) and please tag your friends and family below who are looking for answers and action steps. Thank you so much Dr. Tedros and Dr. Maria for taking the time, and thank you @glblctzn for everything you do. Everyone, please be responsible, stay home and stay safe.”

Priyanka started the online chat by declaring that she’d be submitting the question that were asked to her on her IG stories addressed for the same cause to the doctor. The first question had come from her husband, Nick Jonas, who was in fact the first to join in on the conversation. Nick on his question mentioned that he is a type one diabetic patient and that his wife Priyanka is asthmatic. Both are serious health issues and he is worried about the safety for people who has the same conditions. Theoretically, coronavirus is observed to infect those people in general with pre-existing health conditions or any disorders. Dr Maria assured the lovelorn couple that they were taking the right precautions by staying at home. However, people with no pre-existing conditions should also practice staying at home as everyone is equally susceptible to the virus. She addressed the youths by saying, “You are not invincible.”

Earlier last week, Priyanka had shared a beautiful message on her Instagram:

 

Priyanka further went ahead with the questions asked by her followers on her social media handle.  One of them had asked if the virus can spread through the air, to that Dr. Maria stated clearly, “The virus is not airborne.” However, she confirmed that the virus can spread through “fomites”. the virus can stay on the surface and once there is a human contact it might lead to the infliction of the same. She insisted on the regular washing of hands and staying indoors and maintaining basic hygiene.

Someone had asked if a person recovered from the virus can again get ill from the same or not. To that she said records are still on process, however, your body is likely to build an immune system towards the virus and you might show different symptoms. The statement, however, is not verified, as confirmed by Dr. Maria.

Priyanka went ahead and asked on behalf of one of her followers if the disease can spread in different climates. Both Dr. Maria and Dr. Tedros confirmed that it is happening under different climatic conditions, for example, China and Canada have completely different climate patterns. So they are still working on this fact. They added, whatever the case may be, the vaccine will take at least almost 2 more years to be discovered and circulated.

Priyanka ended the IGTV chat by extending her concerns about developing and economically unstable countries such as India and pleaded to not spread panic around about basic necessities disappearing from the markets. She finally said that apart from everything how everyone should understand that we are all in this pandemic situation together. “It’s a weird leveler,” she said. Priyanka and Nick have been practicing self-isolation for close to three weeks.

However, this picture does not confirm that, what do you think?
