It's important to smile during these unprecedented times, and Tom Morello's shared a lighthearted way to promote safety during the coronavirus outbreak, thanks to none other than the Wu-Tang Clan. On Saturday (March 14), the Rage Against The Machine guitarist shared a Wu-Tang acronym on Instagram to easily remember precautionary steps to help halt the spread of the virus:

Wash hands

Use mask properly

Touch nothing

Avoid large crowds

Never touch your face with unclean hands

Go to the hospital of you have severe symptoms

On Sunday (March 15), he shared a more serious post about social distancing: an image of burnt and unburnt matches separated by one match moved down from the rest, with the message "The one who stayed away saved the rest."

Check out both of Morello's posts below.
