Surgeon general calls on Kylie Jenner to get the word out about COVID-19…No way, way?

America’s top doctor has asked socialite Kylie Jenner to help get the word out about COVID-19 to young people who are still partying on Spring break.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams vented his frustration over the lack of compliance by young people who are determined to enjoy their break from studies.

Miami residents expressed outrage when photos surfaced of kids partying on South Beach last week, despite the warnings about the COVID-19 virus.

When the governor closed the beach, the kids moved the party to another beach.

During an appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday, Adams expressed his concern that some of the youth, who are asymptomatic, may spread the virus to their elders.

“What I really think we need to do [is] get out influencers,” said Adams, referring to Kylie Jenner, 22, of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” fame.

“We need to get Kylie Jenner and social media influencers out there, in helping folks understand that look, this is serous. This is absolutely serious. People are dying,” Adams said.

He said he hoped Jenner would get the message across to youngsters who don’t watch the news or trust the government.
