KISS icon Gene Simmons shared his opinion about the people who don’t care about coronavirus pandemic on Twitter and touched upon another epidemic he had gone through.
Polio is a highly contagious disease that causes muscle weakness, resulting in an inability to move like paralysis. In 1952, Polio cases in the United States reached 57K people and killed 3K of them.
Gene stated that he was three years old when this epidemic hit the world, and he survived after getting the virus. Furthermore, he took the attention to the coronavirus pandemic and said that people should need to be more careful by wearing masks and washing their hands.
Here is what Gene Simmons wrote:
“When I was 3 yrs old, I came down with POLIO in 1952. It was a worldwide pandemic. I survived…
The present-day lunacy of pandemic deniers will result in death, for many of them… Wear masks. Wash your hands. Whenever you can. Wherever you can.”
A fan named Paul replied:
“Relax man. The sky isn’t falling. If you want to hole up at the house and wait this out then more power to ya but don’t preach to me because I have to continue to work and I don’t fall in lockstep with what you do.”
Another fan named Donnie said:
“This happened to my Mom & Brother also in the early ’50s. My brother was an infant and he fully recovered. My Mom had lingering effects. Both RIP now.”
