She added of Jenner, “One of my patients, a beautiful Living Angel just donated $1,000,000 to help us buy hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear which we will have delivered directly to our first responders, as too many masks at hospitals are disappearing before making their way onto the faces of our front line heroes.” The doctor went on to say that she has “never felt more blessed to be a doctor.” “From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU @kyliejenner ❤️,” she wrote. “You are my hero. This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much. Thank you X a million.”

The Kylie Cosmetics founder responded to the post, thanking her doctor for her work. “i love you! and thank YOU for all the love and care you put into everything that you do!” she wrote. “you’re an angel on earth.” Jenner’s rep told Page Six, “I can confirm that she did make the donation. Dr. Aliabadi delivered Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, according to TMZ. Jenner has also been vocal about the importance of practicing social distancing after the Surgeon General asked for her help in spreading awareness. “The coronavirus is a real thing,” Jenner noted in an Instagram post made last week. “I listened to the Surgeon General this morning…he definitely encouraged me to come on here and talk to you guys.”

“Please stay inside. Practice social distancing, self-quarantine,” Jenner went on to note. “If you live with your parents, you don’t want to go home and get your parents sick. You might have it and not even know and be infecting other people. It’s serious and the only way that we’re gonna slow this down is if we do this because there is not a cure right now.”

Bebe Cool’s wife, Zuena Kirema, seems to have rubbed some of her followers the wrong way when she made a suggestion about the old taxi park.

CORONAVIRUS TIP – Looking after yourself, your family & friends is important through these stressful times. WHO encourages everyone at home to do simple & fun physical activities to stay healthy & active Flexed biceps. Follow Ministry of Health Guidelines.

Following the presidential directive to halt all public means of transport over coronavirus, this morning, the old taxi park in downtown Kampala was empty. The usually busy transport hub had no activity at all something many had never seen.

After looking at the photos and videos, Zuena made an innocent suggestion to KCCA to swing into action and renovate the park since it will remain like decongested for the next 14 days.

KCCA now that the old taxi park is empty, don’t you think you should use this chance to renovate it?

They can use fewer people to avoid congestion hence to reduce the spread of corona & if need be they can camp there till they’re done.

Just thinking

Zuena Posted on her Facebook Page

Although some of her followers agreed with her, others were totally disappointed by Zuena’s suggestion calling her all sorts of names. Their major concern was the safety of the renovation team that KCCA would have to bring on board.

Petit responded; That would have been a good idea but I don’t think the constructors are immune to coronavirus which is the reason for the lockdown. We can’t put their lives at risk!! Those taxis can always be asked out temporarily so it can be worked on.

Rose added; Rest at home or rest in peace. How can u tell them to renovate when we are all supposed to stay indoors for our safety?

Immaculate said; Good idea, naye don’t you think the money that would be used to renovate the park can be more useful in the covid-19 fight. As of now, there may be more cases that are expected to come up. Just thinking.

Zuena was quick to defend her self. She said that a few people can be used to do this job because we don’t know how long we’ll be indoors. If it means that the team would have to start camping there for that long, so be it.

We will keep you posted.
