Talk show host Wendy Williams has been keeping her fans entertained by working from home. In her recent update, Williams updated her fans about the advice she got from Dr. Mehmet Oz about physical intimacy amid the corona pandemic. 


A few days ago, Wendy Williams joined the list of celebrities who are working from home. Much to her fans' delight, the "The Wendy Williams Show" host is broadcasting from her apartment

During Monday's "Wendy @Home" segment, the 55-year-old host shared the details about her appearance on "Dr. Oz" last week during which she talked about physical intimacy.

According to Williams, she inquired with Dr. Mehmet Oz about what a single person like her should do about intimate relations amid the coronavirus outbreak and self-quarantine. 

He ended up saying, ‘You know what? Hold out. It’ll be over soon.'


Dr. Oz advised her that abstinence could be the best way to go during this time of uncertainty. The New York City Department of Health also advised that having intimate relations might not be safe at this time. 

Since kissing can also transfer the virus easily, the department advised people to avoid kissing anyone who isn't a part of one's small circle of close contacts. 



In the same video, Williams also shared that she is concerned about the possible transmission of coronavirus through clothing. To clear her doubts, she asked Dr. Oz about it.

"Then, as far as clothing, he said, ‘Yes! The germs last for two hours.’"


According to the Centres for Disease Control, one must wear protective disposable gloves when handling laundry used by an infected person and avoid shaking it so as to avoid dispersing the virus through air. 

Corona pandemic has halted the production of TV shows across many networks. Talk show hosts like Jimmy Fallon and Whoopi Goldberg are working from home in an attempt to keep themselves safe while entertaining their fans. 

After the New York city's state government put everything in lockdown, it is uncertain as to when "The Wendy Williams Show" will be back on TV with a studio audience. Until the dust of the corona pandemic settles, fans can expect a lot more home videos from their favorite shows.
