‘Things Just Got Real’: Internet Reacts To Ted Cruz Retweeting AOC’s ‘Good Advice’ On Coronavirus

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) set the internet abuzz over the weekend after sharing coronavirus precautions that were tweeted by Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and applauded her “good advice” to avoid the spread of Coronavirus.

“To everyone in NYC but ESPECIALLY healthy people & people under 40 (bc from what I’m observing that’s who needs to hear this again): PLEASE stop crowding bars, restaurants, and public spaces right now. Eat your meals at home,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez’s warning was posted as governors in several states shuttered restaurants, bars and movie theaters to encourage social distancing. Los Angeles and New York City followed suit Sunday, but allowed restaurants to offer take-out and delivery orders.

Cruz announced on Friday that he will extend his self-quarantine until March 17 after “a second interaction” with an individual who tested positive for coronavirus.

Cruz and Ocasio-Cortez’s words align with advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has recommended that all gatherings of 50 people or more be canceled or postponed for the next eight weeks in a bid to slow community spread of COVID-19.

Bipartisanship in the coronavirus crisis allowed the House to pass an economic relief package last week that includes provisions for free coronavirus testing and paid sick leave. The Senate will take up the bill this week.

Twitter commentators noted the significance of Cruz’s embrace of Ocasio-Cortez’s advice in light of their differences:
