YouTube star “Markiplier” talks about the pandemic

YouTuber Markiplier who has always been a humanitarian and a people-first or community-first type of person, grabs the opportunity to talk about Coronavirus.

Markiplier, after witnessing what fear and panic can do to the everyday lives of people around him and the whole world around through social media and his audience, took the leads in his hands to talk about the new pandemic that has been spreading around and causing fear. Having a big community under his channel, which at the time of writing is 25.1 million subscribers, really helps in terms of reaching out to a wide range of people. He denied to openly speak about subjects that he himself has no control over (like politics, quarantines and why all this is happening) and he only was focused about talking about the confirmed facts of Coronavirus (Covid-19), about how uninfected people can protect themselves or about how infected people can stop the virus from spreading.

Throughout his video, he always was emphasizing on panic and fear, that there is absolutely no need to panic or fear and that people need to “keep their heads to their shoulders”, without causing unnecessary fear to people around them. He did, though, say that Coronavirus is indeed dangerous and deadly, but is only so dangerous and so deadly to people who suffer from chronic diseases, from immunocompromising diseases (like HIV) and elderly people, in hopes of waking up the irresponsible and reckless ones.

The video in talk, is this:

Great job, Markiplier. The gaming community agrees and is with you, keep it up!
