Pop star Britney Spears has ended the coronavirus pandemic – well, at least some social media users claim she has. The 44-year-old took to Twitter on 7 April to congratulate healthcare workers and thank them for their service during the outbreak. The singer also highlighted the importance of self-isolation and observing hygiene. She posted a meme showing herself in an outfit that she wore in a video to her iconic song "…Baby One More Time", holding a bottle of hand sanitiser. The meme also featured a line from the song "my loneliness is killing me", which was changed to "my loneliness is saving me".
The singer’s fans praised her for the thankful message to healthcare workers and in a joking manner said that the artist had ended the coronavirus pandemic.
