Pop singer Bebe Rexha is urging her fans to take the coronavirus more seriously -- claiming that a "friend of a friend" has already died from the virus.

"This is NOT A JOKE. A friend of a friend just died of corona at the age of 45," she wrote. "STAY INSIDE YOUR F*CKIN HOUSE AND DO YOUR CIVIC DUTY. PLEASE."

She then posted a message to the government.

"The US government should put a stop to rent payments, mortgage payments and utility payments at least until the corona virus is under control," Rexha continued. "Millions of Americans are worried about keeping their jobs and their homes instead of staying safe. @realDonaldTrump."

There have been at lest 85 deaths in the US since the coronavirus spread and more than 7,000 deaths worldwide. Over 4,600 people in the United States have tested positive for the illness.
