Jennifer Aniston shared a graphic photo of a friend battling COVID-19 and urged people to #wearadamnmask.

The actress took to Instagram Sunday, July 19, to share the story of a friend of both hers and Courtney Cox, who had contracted the deadly virus earlier this year.

"This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is COVID-19. This is real," she wrote, alongside a graphic photo of him in the ICU.

Urging her followers to wear a mask, "The Morning Show" the actress wrote, "We can't be so naive to think we can outrun this...if we want this to end, and we do, right? The one-step we can take is PLEASE #wearadamnmask."

Aniston also posted a photo of her and Cox wearing masks.

"Just think about those who've already suffered through this horrible virus. Do it for your family. And most of all yourself. COVID affects all ages," she wrote.

Her friend has since recovered.

Several people, including her friends from the industry, thanked her for spreading awareness.

"It’s horrible. Praying for him and everyone else affected by it. Wear a mask, people! We are in this together," stylist Karla Welch wrote.

"Will keep him my prayers. thank you for sharing," Naomi Campbell commented.

"Right on sister," wrote Gwyneth Paltrow.

This is not the first time that Aniston is spreading awareness about wearing masks.

“I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down... jobs are being lost... health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough. I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this. BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their ‘rights being taken away’ by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate,” she wrote in an Instagram post earlier this month.
