Jennifer Aniston is sharing her personal connection to COVID-19 in order to warn other about the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic. In a post to Instagram Sunday, the actress, 51, shared two photos. One of a person in a hospital bed attached to a cords and a ventilator and one of her and "Friends" co-star Courteney Cox wearing matching masks.
"This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is Covid. This is real," Aniston captioned the post. "We can't be so naive to think we can outrun this...if we want this to end, and we do, right? The one step we can take is PLEASE #wearadamnmask." ⠀ She continued, "Just think about those who've already suffered through this horrible virus. Do it for your family. And most of all yourself. Covid affects all ages." She added a "PS" that the hospital photo was taken in early April. "Thank god he has almost recovered now. Thank you all for your prayers 🙏🏼❤️" she added.
