Dr. Jackie Walters Urges People to Wear Masks to Fight COVID-19
"Take a tip from a doctor," urged the Married to Medicine OBGYN.
Dr. Jackie Walters had an incredibly important message to share during the July 7 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home. The Married to Medicine OBGYN explained the importance of staying diligent when it comes to preventing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Hey guys, I hope you’re not believing what you’re hearing from the administration, but COVID-19 is still here. So please, to my Black community, we are disproportionately affected more than others,” Dr. Jackie said. “Whether it’s health disparity or health conditions, we’re dying faster.”
Dr. Jackie then shared some advice for staying healthy and safe during the pandemic.
“So take a tip from the doctor. Wear your mask. Social distance. And please, wash your hands,” she said. “Lastly, go vote. Ignite the change you want to see. Go vote.”
During the June 22 Instagram Live panel, Amplify Our Voices: An Open Dialogue on Being Black in America, Dr. Jackie gave Millennials and Gen Z props for leading the charge in terms of making change.
““So let me shout out this generation, though,” she said. “Honey. Oh... my god. They’re not us. And you’ve seen the thing, ‘We are not our ancestors,’ and they can certainly say, ‘We are not our mamas. We are not our aunts.’ Oh my god. You know what? They take me back to the Martin Luther King era. Like, we’re gonna die for right. We’re gonna stand for right. We’re gonna do whatever we need to do, we’re gonna get your attention, because this is wrong and we’re not going to accept it anymore.”
