AceShowbiz – Priyanka Chopra is making the most of her coronavirus self-isolation by offering up an online wellness chat with two World Health Organisation experts.
The actress and her husband Nick Jonas have been following the ‘social distancing’ guidelines for eight days and on Thursday, March 19, the “Baywatch” star revealed plans to host an Instagram Live event with the Director General of the World Health Organisation and another high ranking official to answer some of her followers’ questions.
The live chat will take place later on Thursday.
“I hope you are all safe out there. I just wanted to come in and say hello!” Priyanka said. “This is such an insane time and all of our lives have been completely turned upside down and it feels like, something out of a movie, but it’s not. Nick and I have been home for the last week and this is Day 8 of self-isolation for us…”.
“We are taking all recommended precautions right now. We are safe, we are healthy, we are practicing social distancing. All of the solitary time makes you think. And just like all of you, I have been reading and all the information online seems scary. But I’m also wondering how much of the information is actually accurate. Ain’t you wondering that? What is real out there and what’s not? It’s just also confusing and overwhelming…”
“I’m organizing an Instagram Live with the help of Global Citizen with Dr Tedros, the Director General of the World Health Organisation, and Maria Van Kerkhove, who is the technical lead for COVID-19 at the WHO… Knowledge is power and the more we know, the quicker we can work together to flatten the curve and fight this.”
Hugh Evan, the CEO of Global Citizen, will also be part of the Instagram Live chat.
Meanwhile, Priyanka admits spending so much time with her husband has been strange. “We have always had such crazy schedules and had so many people around us all day and all of a sudden, this being our reality, it just feels crazy,” she added.
