Diplo(ディプロ)が、新型コロナウイルスの影響で、息子と今後数週間に渡って物理的な距離を置かなければならない、と SNS に投稿した。
この1ヶ月間、Diplo はツアーを行い何百人もの人たちと接触していたため、息子と離れて生活しなければ危険であると判断したのだろう。

Diplo はその悲痛な思いを投稿し、その体験を次のように語っている


以下の投稿では、Diplo はフォロワーたちに必要な予防措置を取るようにも嘆願している。



My son's are too young to understand the complexities of what's happening. But they aren't anxious and nervous like the rest of us. They live in a house with their grandmother who is the most vulnerable. I have been in contact with hundreds of people in the past four weeks... And I'm staying away from the house until I am cleared of the virus. This hurts because I miss them so much they are what makes me wake up every day and live and breath, they are my ultimate joy, but this is my sacrifice to make sure everyone around me is safe.. I haven't had this much time home in years, and I wanted to build Legos and watch movies with them.. But for now im just going to stay by the window and listen to them play drums and sing for me .. Think about others in every decision you make in the coming weeks. This isn't A drill.. We already have enough news from Italy Iran Korea and China about the best ways to slow this.. We need to be smart, going out and interacting with groups is canceled, but kindess is not canceled, Love is not canceled, empathy is not canceled. Happiness is not canceled... Stay strong for the ones who can't right now

たしかに Diplo のいう通り、自分がウイルスに感染していないつもりでも、本当は感染しており、気付かないうちに自分の身近な高齢者にうつしてしまっているかもしれない。
