Bella Hadid and Anna Wintour have urged followers to take social distancing measures seriously and stay at home to help curb the spread of coronavirus.

Residents of many countries around the world have been instructed to self-isolate and avoid social gatherings to help reduce the spread of Covid-19, which has now infected more than 341,000 people, resulting in the deaths of approximately 14,700.

However, some people have not been taking the social distancing advice seriously, with them getting scolded by celebrities and the general public online.

The 23-year-old helped encourage her followers to stay at home over the weekend by sharing a topless selfie in which she uses a half-eaten burrito to cover her modesty.

"Me and my burrito telling you to stay inside! not only for the sake of just yourself but also for literally the entire world and all of the people that you love," she wrote in the Instagram caption. "Its (sic) crazy because all we have to do is work together to slow down this virus and people are still having trouble understanding that... don't be selfish!"

After suggesting activities that people could do to pass the time, she concluded by instructing her followers to "wash those damn hands" and added, "To the people who are still working and the ones who can't ... I love you and I am thinking about you!"

Meanwhile, U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour posted a picture of herself relaxing in an armchair at home on the publication's Instagram page and implored readers to join her and the rest of the magazine's staff in pledging to stay at home.

"There is no more important rule for all of us to follow. We must, right this moment, pledge to stay in our homes as much as we possibly can," she wrote. "There is no debate or discussion. We must stay in our homes. That is the only way to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and to protect those who are most vulnerable to it. So, join me in a pledge that all of us at @voguemagazine are making today: #stayhome. There is no more valuable action you can take."
