It looks like Vanessa Hudgens is not worried about catching the coronavirus. The actress attended a sold out Tame Impala concert in Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday, March 11, despite medical professionals’ call for “social distancing” in an attempt to prevent further spreading of the illness.
The former High School Musical star took to her Instagram Stories to share various videos and clips of herself dancing and having fun at the concert, which showed her sporting a face mask.
According to the World Health Organization, wearing face masks does not protect people from catching the disease.
“If you are not ill or looking after someone who is ill then you are wasting a mask. There is a world-wide shortage of masks, so WHO urges people to use masks wisely,” the wrote on their website. “The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are to frequently clean your hands, cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue and maintain a distance of at least three feet from people who are coughing or sneezing.”
The WHO has reported that more than 125,000 people in over 40 countries have contracted the illness so far, resulting in more than 5,00 deaths. In an attempt to stop the disease from spreading, numerous events, concerts and festivals have been canceled or postponed, including Coachella, all Broadway plays and sports games, a bunch of award shows and more. Miley Cyrus, Louis Tomlinson, JoJo Siwa, Billie Eilish, BTS, Ally Brooke, Niall Horan, Selena Gomez, Jeffree Star, Meg Donnelly and more are among those who have canceled their shows due to concerns over the disease. For the first time since September 11, 2001, every Disney theme park and cruise line worldwide will be shut down due to the coronavirus, plus, production on shows like Riverdale, Carnival Row and more has been put on hold.
