Entertainment

Singer Neil Diamond is encouraging his followers to wash their hands and practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

He posted a video to YouTube and Instagram Sunday where he sings a bit of his hit song “Sweet Caroline” but rewords the lyrics to, “Hands/Washing hands/Reaching out/Don’t touch me/I won’t touch you.”

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness including pneumonia.
