After Naomi Campbell shared images of herself on Instagram wearing a hazmat suit through LAX amid the coronavirus outbreak, the supermodel has also released a YouTube video today revealing the behind-the-scenes moments before she arrived at the airport, and her reasoning as to why she chose what she wore. Campbell was flying from Los Angeles to New York City, both cities which have been heavily affected by the virus.
“It’s not a funny time, it’s not a humorous time, I’m not doing this for laughs,” she said in the video on her channel, Being Naomi. “This is how I feel comfortable traveling if I have to travel; I’m trying to keep it to a minimum.”
The video opens with news clips mentioning the coronavirus and cuts to seven hours before her flight, with the CR star getting acupuncture ear seeds put in, which are to help with anxiety. “As this is a very sensitive time in the world, I’m not going to lie to you and say I’m not nervous to take this flight…I am,” she said. She then put on her hazmat suit, revealed to have been bought from Amazon.
Campbell is well-known for being on top of her health and taking necessary precautions. The frequent flyer has been wiping her airplane seats for 17 years and wearing face masks since the ’90s. The YouTube video also shows Campbell swallowing two packets of a vitamin C solution and an immune-boosting papaya concentrate supplement before walking to the airport. She then cautions a TSA worker who is not wearing gloves while handling passports. In an interview following the video’s release, Campbell spoke further about her concern: “Can you imagine the people risking their lives every day touching thousands of passports? We have to feel for people like doctors, postmen, delivery people, people who work in the airports and public transport—we need to feel for these people because this is their job and they’re putting themselves at a high-risk [to do it].”
After her flight and making it to New York, the model reflects on her journey in the video. “But in all seriousness, I think we must take every precaution that makes us protective and comfortable,” she concludes. “I travel constantly and am definitely going to keep traveling to a minimum.”
