Victoria Beckham urged fans to "continue to be kind and resilient" in a message honouring healthcare workers at Britain's National Health Service (NHS) on Thursday.

The 45-year-old fashion designer took to her Instagram account to share the message, reflecting on the "strange and uncertain" times as the World Health Organization (WHO) urges people to practice social distancing and stay home amid the health scare.

"My thoughts have been with all of you – my community and your loved ones. I hope everyone is keeping safe and protecting themselves x," Beckham wrote. "We are continuing to learn from the experts and navigating a new way of communicating and supporting each other through this time."

The former Spice Girls star continued: "Most of all, I am thinking of the incredible NHS staff and healthcare workers around the world. We cannot thank them enough. The solidarity and kindness that has spread online is overwhelming and we must continue to be kind and resilient. xxxx VB."

The outbreak of Covid-19 has seen more than 246,500 cases registered, resulting in a death toll of over 10,000, since it began in December.

Coronavirus has led to a number of cancellations in the fashion world, most notably, the 2020 Met Gala, which was set to take place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in May, and the 2020 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.

Many brands have postponed upcoming runway shows too, while thousands of stores have been temporarily closed.
