Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy encourages people to wash their hands with at-home experiment.
At just eight-years-old, Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter is schooling people on the importance of washing their hands as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage across the country. Blue Ivy Carter, with the help of her grandmother Tina Lawson, shared a video of an at-home experiment, showing viewers how soap repels dirt, on Saturday.
Her PSA came just hours after her mother joined stars in the One World: Together at Home concert to discuss the disproportionate affects of the virus on the black community. 'I have this little DIY experiment that you can do at home, too,' Blue can be heard saying in the video, in a rare speaking clip. Her small hands are the only part of her shown on camera, as she stands at a counter with a bowl filled with water and pepper. 'I have a mixture of a lot of different types of soap inside of this,' Blue said, explaining the experiment. 'And this is the coronavirus, or any virus– it’s actually just pepper,” she adorably clarified.' After applying soap to her hand she placed one finger in the water mixture and the pepper flakes immediately spread to the edges away from her soap covered finger.
In the caption, of the Instagram TV video, Beyonce's mom Tina wrote 'Blue's PSA.' Adding: 'My brilliant granddaughter Blue did this experiment to show how washing your hands fights the virus.' Warning viewers, in the video Blue added: 'If you wash your hands, your hands will stay clean. But if you keep your hands dirty, you might get sick.'
The pandemic has seen over 740,000 confirmed cases in the U.S., and over two million worldwide, with nearly 40,000 deaths nationally.
