Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is participating in a social media takeover on Tuesday to share information about COVID-19.

She’ll be taking over the accounts of Hollywood star Olivia Munn. By using the celebrity actress’ platform, Henry will be able to reach and inform a larger, international audience.

The takeover is part of a new initiative from the ONE World Campaign called #PassTheMic, during which celebrities and medical experts work together to spread information about the virus.

“There are some people you need to hear from right now and it isn’t me,” said Munn in an earlier statement.

Henry has already begun the takeover, with several posts and stories on Munn’s Instagram account.

“We need to learn and take the best from each other and each of our pandemic experiences,” Henry said in a video post. “Rich or poor, we need to support each other so no one is left behind.”

Henry has previously said that the coronavirus “has shown us that if it is anywhere, everywhere is at risk. We are a global community, and we’re all in the same storm, but we are not all in the same boat.”
