Jennifer Aniston warns of COVID-19 dangers with a touching story about a friend
‘This is Covid. This is real.’ Jennifer Aniston is urging people to realize the real dangers of COVID-19 with a powerful message.
Recently, the well-known actress Jennifer Aniston posted a heartbreaking photo of a friend of both hers and Courteney Cox. Their friend contracted coronavirus and was hospitalized earlier this year, TMZ reports. The distressing image shows the man in what appears to be an ICU.
In the Instagram post, Aniston writes:
“This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is Covid. This is real.”
The actress adds that we shouldn’t be so ‘naive to think we can outrun this’. What she most insists on is for people to wear a mask.

This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is Covid. This is real. ⠀ ⠀ 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.⠀ ⠀ 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. PS this photo was taken in early April. Thank god he has almost recovered now. Thank you all for your prayers 🙏🏼❤️
Along with the photograph of their friend struggling with COVID-19, Jennifer has also posted a selfie of her and Courteney Cox wearing matching masks, adding:
“The one step we can take is PLEASE #wearadamnmask. 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.”
Luckily, Jen and Courteney’s friend is presently recovering from the dangerous virus. Aniston explained:
“PS this photo was taken in early April. Thank god he has almost recovered now. Thank you all for your prayers 🙏🏼❤️”
Additionally, Jennifer’s long-time friend and co-star Courteney Cox has posted an endearing video with two sweet puppies encouraging people to simply put a face mask on and protect themselves and the ones around them. At the end of the video, she attached another photo of her and Aniston wearing matching masks while cuddled up with the adorable puppers, who are also wearing protective masks.
Their dear friend and ‘Friends’ castmate Lisa Kudrow is also spreading awareness.
Hopefully, such alerting social media posts will reach more people and help them realize the actual urgency of the ongoing pandemic.
