Bob Geldof was pictured wearing a protective face mask at Heathrow Airport this week. The 68-year-old singer donned the protective gear to catch a flight from Dublin to London yesterday, as Coronavirus fears begin to soar. The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has surged to 90 today.
Musician Geldof, who found fame in the late 1970s with Irish rock band Boomtown Rats, was snapped making his way through the airport with his luggage in tow.
The Dublin-born star took extra precautions as he carried a bag over his shoulder and pushed a suitcase on wheels through the terminal.
He was casually-dressed in a navy blue duffle coat and trousers and wore a brown hat and boots.
A white face mask covered his mouth and nose to protect him from the coronavirus.
Other stars such as Dame Joan Collins, Kourtney Kardashian and Demi Rose have also been pictured wearing protective face masks.
Earlier this week, the Live Aid founder attended the World Premiere of Citizens Of Boomtown, which took place at the Dublin International Film Festival 2020.
