Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni and her husband rapper Fedez have called on their fans to wear face masks, responding to Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte’s call to raise awareness in the fight against COVID-19.
Ferragni (33) and Fedez (31) are especially popular among teenagers and have interrupted their usual flow of glamor on Instagram to emphasize the importance of masks in fighting infections.
– We are in a difficult situation and wearing a mask can avoid the worst-case scenario, locking – Ferragni said on Tuesday to her 21.5 million Instagram followers, holding a surgical mask in her hand.
Fedez told his followers that Conte called the couple over the weekend to ask for their help, and the data show that the infections grew among younger people, reports Reuters.
Italy, a European country hit hard by the coronavirus, saw an increase in daily cases this month, and the government ordered new measures to try to keep infections under control, including mandatory wearing of masks outdoors.
