And, aside from the widespread panic, another reason for this is undoubtedly the number of celebs who have been infected with the virus or having to self-isolate.

According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is a new strain of coronaviruses that had not been previously been identified in humans.

Jana Kramer.

"Well. Here we are. 2 days ago we flew to Canada. I can admit when I’m wrong and I feel like I should have listened, but I didn’t want to live in fear and I also trusted production that everything was better in Canada (it is as of now) so because production wasn’t shutting down we left as advised. As the hours literally kept passing there were new rules, precautions etc to follow so my concern grew larger. "As of today we shot our first and only scene. The Prime Minister put more restrictions on and the production did the absolute right thing by shutting us down. It’s safer for ALL THOSE THAT CAN to be home, and hunker down so we can stop the spread and keep our families and friends and people next to us healthy."

Gal Gadot.

"Staying home is my superpower, and yours! Please everyone take care of yourself, your loved ones and us all. This situation should not be taken lightly," she wrote on Instagram.

"I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God —she said we’re gonna be ok."

Tom Hanks.

"My self-isolation squad..."

Sophie and Justin Trudeau.

The Canadian Priminister and his wife, Sophie, have tested positive for coronavirus. They are now self-quarantining at home.

But some celebrities have been taking to social media for all the wrong reasons.

Vanessa Hudgens took to Instagram to share some rather bizarre opinions on the virus - and the internet isn't happy.

She's since removed the vid - but the internet never forgets.

Here it is in all its ... glory?

In it, Hudgens make some rather ignorant and off-color remarks about the pandemic.

"Um, yeah, ’til July sounds like a bunch of bulls–t. I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it, but at the same time I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable?"

And needless to say, Twitter was not happy.

"People do die, but wouldn’t you rather do your part than to risk being a factor in another’s misfortune?" replied a fan.

Not a smart move, Vanessa.

The virus has also been having a huge impact on the movie and TV industry.

But now, to take a little of the heat off Vanessa...

Another celebrity has ruffled a few feathers with her stance on the coronavirus pandemic.

Evangeline Lilly is the latest famous face to come under fire...

And it's all because she has refused to self-isolate herself and her children.

The actress shared an image of her morning tea to Instagram...

With the caption: "Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual"

Evidently, she is still going about her day-to-day business with little care about the coronavirus risks.

And, with businesses and schools closing around the world because of the virus outbreak, Lilly’s stance has provoked some serious anger among her followers.

People are not happy with the actress...

One Instagram user wrote, “Don’t be silly please. It is serious", while another commented, "I urge you to reconsider your selfish and ignorant stance. You won’t forgive yourself if your mother is to suffer as a result of your stupidity."

Evangeline, just stay indoors, please.
