New York City has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States. Here are the stars who are still staying in the Big Apple amid the devastating outbreak.
New York City has faced tragedies and celebrations in equal measure over the decades. Now, the Big Apple is facing it’s toughest challenge yet. As of March 31, the state of New York alone has well over 67,000 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus. By comparison, there are over 163,500 cases reported in the country. Naturally, many citizens in NYC chose to either flee the city or return to their roots in various parts of the country. But some have chosen to stay and brave through this uncertain time.
Hugh Jackman has been staying cooped up in his NYC apartment, too. However, the Oscar-nominated actor, 51, took to Instagram on March 30 to extend his well wishes and his gratitude to the US Navy and medical services as they came into NYC via pier. “To all the doctors, all the nurses, and everyone involved with the Navy: Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
