The Korean star known as Jaejoong of the K-pop group JYJ posted on Instagram that he had been infected with the coronavirus. It was an April Fools ’ Day joke. His fans weren’t laughing.
Jaejoong of JYJ told his fans he had the virus, then admitted he had made up the diagnosis. His devastated fans were unamused.
especially in homes, hospitals and other confined spaces. The pathogen can be carried on tiny respiratory droplets that fall as they are coughed or sneezed out. It may also be transmitted when we touch a contaminated surface and then touch our face.Is there a vaccine yet?
No.Such rapid development of a potential vaccine is unprecedented, but even if it is proved safe and effective, it probably will not be available for 12 to18 months.What makes this outbreak so different?Unlike the flu, there is no known treatment or vaccine, and
It seems to be more lethal than the flu, but the numbers are still uncertain. And it hits the elderly and those with underlying conditions — not just those with respiratory diseases — particularly hard.What should I do if I feel sick?If you’ve been exposed to the coronavirus or think you have,
and have a fever or symptoms like a cough or difficulty breathing, call a doctor. They should give you advice on whether you should be tested, how to get tested, and how to seek medical treatment without potentially infecting or exposing others.How do I get tested?
If you’re sick and you think you’ve been exposed to the new coronavirus,They will decide if you need to be tested. Keep in mind that there’s a chance — because of a lack of testing kits or because you’re asymptomatic, for instance — you won’t be able to get tested.
What if somebody in my family gets sick?If the family member doesn’t need hospitalization and can be cared for at home, you should help him or her with basic needs and monitor the symptoms, while also keeping as much distance as possible,according to guidelines issued by the C.D.C.
If there’s space, the sick family member should stay in a separate room and use a separate bathroom. If masks are available, both the sick person and the caregiver should wear them when the caregiver enters the room. Make sure not to share any dishes or other household items and to regularly clean surfaces like counters, doorknobs, toilets and tables. Don’t forget to wash your hands frequently.
Should I wear a mask?Expertsare divided on how much protection a regular surgical mask, or even a scarf, can providefor people who aren’t yet sick. The W.H.O. and C.D.C. say that unless you’re already sick, or caring for someone who is, wearing a face mask isn’t necessary. And stockpiling high-grade N95 masks will make it harder for nurses and other workers to access the resources they need. But researchers are also finding that there are more cases of asymptomatic transmission than were known early on in the pandemic. And a few experts say that masks could offer some protection in crowded places where it is not possible to stay 6 feet away from other people. Masks don’t replace hand-washing and social distancing.
Should I stock up on groceries?Plan two weeks of meals if possible. But people should not hoard food or supplies. Despite the empty shelves,And remember to wipe the handle of the grocery cart with a disinfecting wipe and wash your hands as soon as you get home.

I didn't know NYT is writing an article based on gossip media. He was trying to warn people not to go out to avoid virus as people's tentions are loosing now a day in Korea and Japan. It was not just joking, his real intention was shown on his second post on Instagram. I see no joke!!! What a fool. This no joking matter.
uh this is a bit of a reaching nyt ？？ Stop giving stupid people airtime holyknee He wasn't laughing either. But he's on NY Times now.. So I guess he got what he was aiming for. JYJ of BTS Too soon Stupid k- pop This joke is not at all funny 😶 not funny.. can we put him in an isolation facility Young and dumb.
Can’t fix stupid As a Korean, really want to apologize. Hope he really gets this virus himself and end up locked in his house for months. Then he might learn lesson What fans? Oh look, what's that on the ground there? Your career? Yup. You are done. Now you can go off to work in the Kimchi factory for the rest of your uninteresting life.
I AM so embarrassed right now. and disgusted. Not cool IS THIS YOUR KING? Career = done Stupid joke!!! 'Why so serious?' said the Korona-pop Joker. idiot😡😡 never respect this guy What a bozo! I do right in not listening to their mickeymouse music Koreans blame the Japanese when they do something wrong, so I'm not surprised now.
Who cares This joke is not funny. wtf is wrong with these people?! He doing too much Jail time...for real. The joke is that he has talent! Just what you can expect from an immature adolescent deuce bag. Not funny. Here's a good one by Lil' P! MalcolmNance Perhaps you meant 'formerly of the K-pop group JYJ'? At least they should be.
Wtf STUPID. What a moron! Joke may turn out to be his REALITY one day...there’s a JOKE for him 🙄 Honestly as a fan of his TVXQ group, I am appalled and disappointed in him. There are millions of ppl suffering from this pandemic and joking about it is out-right insensitive and egotistical of him. WhatTheFIsWrongWithYou?
this mf is really not funny and annoying he did donations and has been asking us fans to stay safe more than anyone else. but today his move was wrong. but I think what he did might have really stired up some people to take this matter more seriously i see a lot of people bashing kpop fans under here. i just wanna tell you guys that it’s ok. ignore the ignorant assholes. 💜
Another celebrity idiot! Yeah, that's what I thought when told that Trump has been elected POTUS. He wasn't laughing either Dunno why this is news worthy for NYTimes when other people do dumb shit too but hey why not put this up because people need more things to shit on kpop about right. Half these man under the comments going off as if you weren’t making jokes about East Asians having the Coronavirus like two months ago.

I was waiting for some more on to do something like this. People just can't help themselves Asshole well now the flop is on new york times so i guess he got the attention he wanted

MalcolmNance What an absolute turd! maybe include in your article the reason? and the millions he donated? RAISE AWARENESS (not the best way, tho) Idiot Add him to the list of celebrity gaffs during Coronavirus crisis.

What a Dickhead😜 Pampered bored celebrities with nothing to do...go volunteer to be of use to society...crises like this demonstrate how highly paid and utterly superfluous this group of people are.... are you that bored nytimes? go away Idiot nothing for him to do 😕
Oh. Why would he even do that 'He wanted to raise awareness about Corona Virus but he did it in a wrong way.' His fans aren’t aware of Coronavirus how old are they? 5 years old MalcolmNance Jaejoong is an April fool. most of kpop fans are so CRAZY,DELUSIONAL,CRINGEY, OBSESSED and TOXIC 🥴 especially fans from SMTOWNGLOBAL
Idiot This is most lazy, obvious April Fools' day joke in the world, and it's not funny. At least be original. What a dumbass What a dick move... yuck Way too soon Humor is subjective. Just god awful music. Disgusting koreans! MikeInBuffalo Wow Jaejoong, you made it to western news outlet, for the wrong reason. Even if you meant well, this is not the way to do it.
MalcolmNance During this time of so much pain,fear and death,we all need a good laugh or joke,but please let it b appropriate considering what happening, don't b insensitive, think before you act,have to go,my golden doddle is bring my coffee. April fool's wish. i honestly hate everyone in these comments. kpop should be fucking banned from twitter
Oh honey, that ain't funny, at all These vapid pop stars! I don’t want to wish ill-will on people, especially the shallow ones, but this here is galactically dumb. We did laugh...It is OK. He is fine. 🙂 그 남자 엿먹어. JYJ AskAKorean He took one for the team. Now, other celebrities will think twice today. Covidiot?
I knew he was an idiot... Hence proved... The things the NYT considers “news” is so odd. Jennifer5ptOh I hate waking up to see this narcissist trending. Perhaps now he won't be as much because he's an idiot. Stop making him trend. MalcolmNance That kind of joke is to comedy as K-pop is to music. Ass Bag comma douche.
The excuse of doing this to raise 'an awareness' is a bloody joke. Ce imbecil. 😣😬😕 Not happy about the news or the joke? not funny Well be careful what you wish for stupid MalcolmNance Disrespectful to the victims of this horrible illness and to the families and friends who are devastated by not being able to say goodbye, also to the millions of people around the world that are afraid, this is not a joke.
We didnt think it was funny when china gave the world kung flu either ,thanks china for well,all of them and that pie e of shit should kill him self with fire . It’s a joke, it can’t affect anything We weren't laughing bcs we worried of him... his health... and when we found out the fact we scold him for lying about his health.
Grow up What an idiot. People are dying, losing jobs, businesses closing, kids can't go to school. I find humor in most things, and am not at all easily offended, but COVID-19 is no laughing matter. For now, that's off limits as being funny to me. Do better. Kathy griffin did the same. What? You mean this 100 pound teenage boy isn’t the role model we all thought he was?
Yeah, 'Rona jokes are off limits... we had that discussion at work this morning before we came home. What an idiot lmao He really wanted to end his career huh? At the end of it all, his actions will speak louder than words. Trying to stay relevant. This is not the time for pranks. Bad taste fucking idiot Really? How juvenile, LOSER.
