She is using her fame and social media platform to encourage people to wear masks during the coronavirus pandemic.

And on Sunday, Jennifer Aniston warned of the dangers of COVID-19 by posting a photo of a friend hooked up to a ventilator in hospital.  

‘This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is Covid. This is real,’ she wrote alongside the graphic photo.

It’s the latest in a series of posts that Aniston and her former co-star and real-life best friend Courteney Cox have been sharing to try and get the message across about the potentially deadly virus.

On Sunday, Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti warned once again that the city is on the brink of a second stay-at-home order due to the rising numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.

In her lengthy post, Aniston said: ‘We can’t be so naive to think we can outrun this…if we want this to end, and we do, right? The one step we can take is PLEASE #wearadamnmask.’

The actress, 51, went on: ‘Just think about those who’ve already suffered through this horrible virus. Do it for your family. And most of all yourself. Covid affects all ages.’

She concluded: ‘PS this photo was taken in early April. Thank god he has almost recovered now. Thank you all for your prayers.’

 Aniston concluded her Instagram post with a snap of the two friends stars wearing matching tie dye face masks.

On Saturday, Cox, 56, had shared a video of herself and Aniston snuggled up with her two dogs and all four wearing masks.

'Scary": Back in May, Cox revealed during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that friends staying at her Malibu mansion had contracted the coronavirus. 'One was completely asymptomatic and the other one, it took him down,' she explained

‘He had symptoms, three days after that he was in the hospital on a ventilator, kidneys shut down… this a very young athletic guy… and his husband was completely asymptomatic.’ 

‘It really was scary,’ she told Ellen.

new south wales reports three new covid 19 cases

New South Wales has reported three new COVID-19 cases overnight.

Two cases are from returned travellers currently staying in hotel quarantine.

The other case is a staff member who worked while potentially infectious at Concord Hospital, in Sydney’s inner west. 

NSW Health said it was investigating how the staff member became infected.

‘The case cared for patients with COVID-19 and further investigation is underway to identify how the infection was acquired. 

‘Contact tracing is underway.’

Four people are currently being treated in intensive care units with two connected to respirators.   

NSW had six new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm on Thursday, with just one acquired locally and linked to a known cluster.

Five of the cases were returned overseas travellers in hotel quarantine.

The locally acquired case is a household contact of another one who attended Liverpool Hospital and was in isolation while infectious.

There are now 21 cases linked to the Liverpool Hospital dialysis cluster. 

As the state continues to record low numbers of COVID-19 cases, premier Gladys Berejiklian has made plans to welcome an extra 500 weekly returned travellers.  

The increase will start from September 27, and takes the state’s intake to about 3,000 a week.

It followed Ms Berejiklian’s declaration she’d be happy to accept the extra travellers if Queensland and Western Australia doubled their intake.

Those states will scale up capacity by 500 returnees per week more slowly than NSW.

Ms Berejiklian has for months been urging the other states to lift their game and share the load.

The state premier continues to be at loggerheads with Queensland counterpart Annastacia Palaszczuk over the NSW and QLD border issue.

Queensland announced on Friday ACT residents will be able to fly into the Sunshine State from September 25, but those in NSW cannot as it’s still considered a hotspot.

Ms Berejiklian said all border talks with Ms Palaszczuk had ceased again, but Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles denied any communication breakdown.

He said Queensland’s chief health officer speaks with her NSW counterpart almost every day and he speaks with his counterpart most days too.

It came as NSW agreed to accept an additional 500 returned travellers each week into its hotel quarantine system.

man who lost his penis to a flesh eating bacteria sues hospital

A man is suing a hospital after his penis was amputated when he developed flesh-eating bacteria. 

The 70-year-old from Shepparton, in Victoria, alleges that Goulburn Valley Health failed to treat him ‘adequately’ when he complained to the hospital of his illness, according to The Goulburn Valley News

In a Supreme Court writ filed on Monday, Wayne Grundy claims he caught the bacterial infection and ‘necrotising fasciitis’ during a week-long stay at the facility in April and May 2018.

He alleges that staff at the hospital ‘failed to adequately or properly assess the penis adequately or at all’ and did not administer antibiotics for the first one-and-a-half days of treatment. 

Among the other claims is that he was not transferred to Royal Melbourne Hospital for specialist treatment when the infection was diagnosed. 

The writ claims Mr Grundy suffers ‘psychological upset together with depression and anxiety’ and ‘will continue to suffer loss and damage’. 

He claims he has also developed post-traumatic stress disorder after the alleged botched treatment. 

Carmelo Barbante from Barbarte Personal Injury Lawyers told the publication that these types of cases were rare but the allegations of negligence were serious. 

His client is seeking medical costs, damages, and interest. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Goulburn Valley Health for comment.
