WATCH: Model in sexy bodysuit reminds public to wash hands as protection against coronavirus

While the novel coronavirus is spreading across the globe, a model came up with a daring way to remind the public to practice proper hand hygiene.

Samantha Gangewere from the United States stood at the street of Times Square, New York City, wearing nothing but an orange bodysuit which accentuated her curves.

The model danced and posed while holding a cardboard with the words “wash your damn hands!” as seen on her Instagram account yesterday, March 11. The sexy model also wore an N-95 mask and purple gloves to complete her look.

The model’s stunt in the tourist spot earned her a few amused and curious looks from spectators, which she also documented in the post.


Gangewere explained that she was using her platform to remind the public about the gravity of the situation on another post.

“With a big following sometimes I feel like it’s my duty to send out messages that matter and that [affect] me personally,” she said. “I do have a lower immune system so yes this is a [real-life] problem right now but at the end of the day y’all need to remember to wash your hands!”

The model added, “Stop buying toilet paper and face masks, just wash your hands and don’t touch your face.”



According to the World Health Organization, there are now 1,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. JB
