Sophie Turner reveals she wore a mask while giving birth
Sophie Turner getting pregnant was one of the nicest news of 2020. Unfortunately, the whole year was plagued with much despair due to the global pandemic. There was a lot of strong opinions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. While some took it seriously and took all the precautions, some did not. Celebrities such as Sophie Turner are doing whatever they can to encourage people to be safe while the virus is still very much present in our lives.
Sophie Turner shares the news of her giving birth while wearing a mask
The Game of Thrones actress recently went on Instagram Stories to share a personal story. Sophie Turner revealed that she actually wore a mask while giving birth to her daughter, Willa. Turner shares the daughter with her husband, Joe Jonas.
“If I can wear a mask while I give birth, you can wear a mask at Walmart. And that’s the tea.”
Fans will recognize the ‘And that’s the tea’ as Sophie’s signature phrase. This was certainly the perfect opportunity to use it.
What’s great about the actress is that ever since the pandemic started, she’s been using her platform to encourage people to stay safe. When popular actress Evangeline Lilly took an opposing stance against wearing masks, Sophie Turner had this to tell her fans:
“Stay inside. Don’t be f*cking stupid. Even if you count your freedom over your health. I don’t give a f*ck about your freedom. You could be infecting other people — other vulnerable people — around you by doing this. So stay inside, guys! It’s not cool, it’s not big, and it’s not clever.
And many studies confirm that wearing masks is helpful in controlling the spread of the virus.
A recent study published in Health Affairs, for example, compared the COVID-19 growth rate before and after mask mandates in 15 states and the District of Columbia. It found that mask mandates led to a slowdown in daily COVID-19 growth rate, which became more apparent over time.
Plus, even if you don’t have COVID-19, you could still be a carrier of the virus and transmit it even if you don’t have visible symptoms. Those who have the virus but no symptoms are called asymptomatic and they can still spread the virus.
In that case, wearing a mask greatly reduces the risk. So folks! Listen to Sophie Turner and health experts.
