Justin Bieber, Rihanna, a member of BTS, NBA stars, Mark Cuban and other celebs are aiding the novel coronavirus relief efforts.

The deadly virus has killed thousands of people in more than 150 countries since it was first discovered late last year in Wuhan, China. This strain of the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has also particularly affected Italy, South Korea, Iran, Spain, Germany and the United States, where testing is scarce due to bureaucracy.

The coronavirus has shut down major Hollywood productions and big festivals such as Coachella. Movie releases have been postponed. Broadway, other theaters, comedy clubs and many schools have shut down temporarily. Many jobs have allowed employees to work remotely and millions of people around the world have been ordered or encouraged to self-isolate at home to lower their risk of contracting or spreading the virus.

These celebs have been making a positive impact and giving back to those in need.
