Robin Roberts, shared the adorable video featuring two health care workers, singing heartily as they interchanged the wordings of "New York...New York" with bits of information concerning the ongoing situation of the world.

As the women attempted to enlighten people on the steps to take to combat coronavirus successfully, with their lyrics, they still dressed the part by using facemasks to protect their nose and mouth. The talk show host was intrigued by their gesture, which moved her to share it with her fans on Instagram. She wrote:

"...These healthcare workers on the front lines are putting a special twist to #FrankSinatra's "New York...New York."


Hundreds of her fans seemingly enjoyed the post and commended the "special twist" skill of the health officials.

Just like the numerous celebrities running their fans through their quarantine moments, the "GMA" anchor is always quick to update her followers on what she is doing or where she is during this period.

... especially since 53,853 of infected persons and nearly 800 deaths have been reported.


While some talk show presenters still host their programs in the confines of the studio, the 59-year-old who is also a cancer survivor has her studio set up in the basement of her home.

Robin kept her fans abreast of her situation via Twitter. She shared a video filming in the home studio where she comfortably smiled and relayed the instructions issued to her by her doctors. In the recording she said:

"...I'm working from home...because of my health conditions, my doctor's thought I best that I worked from home."


Another "GMA" worker running her show from home is the Chief Meteorologist, Ginger Zee. Zee also mentioned that her child was down with a fever but seems to be recuperating fine.

Zee and her family are strictly observing the recommendations from health agencies, and she has advised everyone else to do the same.


Other talk show hosts like Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker of "Today" are hosting their shows from their residences.

Craig Melvin of "Today" show worked from home for a while until he decided to join his colleague, Hoda Kotb, who is filming from NBC's Studios 1A.

Irrespective of the location of work, TV stars are being careful just like every other person in the US right now, especially since 53,853 of infected persons and nearly 800 deaths have been reported.
