As Coronavirus continues to spread across the world, Healthcare experts are suggesting that since the scientists are still working on a cure, the only way to keep this disease in control is by practising social distancing. The governments have initiated a lockdown across the world to control the pandemic.
Many countries have declared shutdown to ensure people don't step out of their homes and not contract the deadly virus. While it might be preventing people from catching the disease, the lockdown has financially affected many people and Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande are trying to support their fans amid the health crisis.
Taylor (30) and Ariana (26) have been secretly helping their fans financially. The Man singer recently left two of her fans stunned after they received USD 3,000 each. She sent them the money to help pay for necessities amid the life-threatening pandemic. Samantha Jacobson, who was a cocktail server at Disney World in Orlando, lost her job when the bar owner decided to shut down the bar amid the ongoing health crisis. She had tweeted about the issue and Taylor decided to help.
Another fan, Holly Turner, who is a music photographer and graphic designer in New York, tweeted that she too received the same amount of money from the singer. “I made a post on tumblr about how i was scared i wouldn't be able to stay living in NYC because of what corona has done to the music industry. @taylorswift13 literally single-handedly saved my ability to stay here. i cannot even believe my eyes right now,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, Ariana sent between USD 500 and USD 1000 to more than 20 fans as they financially struggled during the lockdown in the US. She did so using a mobile payment app. Reacting to her selfless gesture, fan told Page Six that the singer “reached out and took care of my salary for the month.”
For the unversed, 606 people have been tested positive as for today for the coronavirus. 43 people have recovered while 10 people have died.
