Kendall Jenner taking social distancing measures 'very seriously'

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner has hit back at claims speculating she's not taking orders to self-isolate seriously.

The model sparked concern on Tuesday after she posted a snap of her classic 1965 red Ford Mustang on social media, with one fan commenting: "UHMMM NO, Stay Home."

In response, Kendall reassured her 125 million Instagram followers that she was only "starting up" the vehicle from her home and was abiding by the advice of California Governor, Gavin Newsom, to practice social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Of course I'm staying home!!" the 24-year-old responded. "Taking this quarantine v seriously... but also not a bad idea to get some fresh air as long as you keep a safe distance from others and follow all guidelines :) everyone stay healthy."

Earlier in the week, Kendall admitted she "misses" her pals amid the lockdown, but also reflected: "The sooner we quarantine, the sooner we can get back to our peoples again (sic)."

Officials from the World Health Organization (WHO) have urged people to stay home and practice social distancing amid the global health crisis, which has seen more than 452,000 cases of Covid-19 confirmed, with over 21,300 deaths registered, since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China last December.
