14 Celebrities Who Have Been Spotted In Face Masks And Hazmat Suits In The Midst Of The Coronavirus Outbreak

It's kind of a fashion statement, but also incredibly creepy.

In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, celebrities have taken to social media to share photos of themselves in everything from bedazzled face masks to apocalyptic hazmat suits. It seems you CAN make a fashion statement in the midst of weird times.

However, the World Health Organization has noted that unless you are currently infected or a medical physician, you do NOT need to wear them. The best course of action at this moment is social distancing and frequently washing your hands.

Despite this warning, consumers are still rushing to buy masks in bulk, only creating a shortage for medical professionals. The situation has become so bad that the surgeon general, Jerome M. Adams, issued a statement on Twitter urging people to stop buying face masks:

Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk! https://t.co/UxZRwxxKL9
