Actor Priyanka Chopra on Tuesday night through an Instagram Live conversation put forward questions about coronavirus to World Health Organisation (WHO) experts and busted some myths about the global pandemic.

WHO General-Director Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s Technical Lead, were part of the live conversation which Priyanka shared on her Instagram. More than 45,000 fans participated in the session.

“There is so much information circulating about Covid-19. And right now we’re all searching for clarity. My friends at @WHO and @glblctzn graciously brought the doctors working on the front lines here to give us answers straight from the experts. Please take some time to watch my IG Live with Dr. Tedros (General-Director at W.H.O.) and Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove (Technical Lead for Covid-19) from @WHO, who answered some questions that so many of you sent in,” Chopra captioned the post.

 

Priyanka has been actively trying to inform people about the pandemic that has destroyed the global economy and human spirit. A week ago she posted an informative thread captioned, “We’re all in this together. Let’s stay informed and do what we can to help stop the spread of #Covid19.”

 

In another post, she addressed how people were hoarding, albeit indirectly, she posted a video captioned, “There are so many other things to stock up on right now. ❤️ Please look out for each other and the people who are most at risk for #Covid19.”

 

In the latest post, Bollywood’s ‘Desi’ girl also asked her fans to spread awareness about the disease and tag their friends and family in the post who are looking for answers and action steps. PC even posted few questions submitted by the general populace and answers to the same on her Instagram story. The first question came from her husband, Nick Jonas, who also joined in on the conversation. One of the questions was about the latest 21 day lockdown in India. Priyanka and Nick have been in self-isolation for weeks now.
