Ralf Little urges fans to take coronavirus seriously as friend dies

Ralf Little is urging people to take coronavirus more seriously, after finding out a distant friend of his died from the flu-like infection.

Taking to Twitter, Ralf reached out to his followers and stressed to them the importance of following precautionary measures put in place by the government.

The UK is currently in lockdown with all bars, pubs, clubs, cafes, restaurants and gyms closing down, schools closing and people being told to stay indoors and to practice social distancing from others.

Those at home should only leave their house for essentials or once a day for exercise.

Wanting fans to strictly adhere to the government guidelines, Ralf stressed that Covid-19 is a ‘very real thing’.

He tweeted: ‘Someone I distantly know died of CV yesterday. Not a close friend but someone I’ve met a few times who, despite being in the high risk category (age wise) was fit and healthy 2 weeks ago.

Fans sent Ralf their well-wishes, with many sharing their own worries over the current pandemic.
