As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe, people have continuously taken steps to mitigate its effect on society. Comedian Ellen DeGeneres is one of those who have taken such an intentional step to lessen the strength of the coronavirus outbreak. However, her isolation looks a bit different from the rest of ours, as hers includes calling former First Lady Michelle Obama.

According to The Daily Mail, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" host decided to FaceTime the "Becoming" author from her Santa Barbara home on Monday.

While on the phone, Mrs. Obama shared some insight as to how she, along with Barack, Sasha, and Malia, are all coping with the recent changes to everyday life.

"We're just trying to keep the routine going, but we've also got a little bit of Netflix and chilling happening," the former FLOTUS said. She then added that Sasha and Malia also returned home from college as a result of the pandemic.

Continuing, Michelle elaborated that she believes there has been "good and bad that goes with it." She then said that she feels "for all the folks that are gonna suffer because of what's going to happen to the economy." However, she also noted that she thinks it could bring about a few unexpected positive results as well.

"On the positive side, I know for us, it's forced us to continue to sit down with each other, have real conversations. Really ask questions and figure out how to keep ourselves occupied without just TV or computers," she added.

Aside from inspiring many to self-isolate, the current outbreak has also affected other aspects of society as well. Not only have various TV shows decided to go without audiences, such as "Jeopardy!" and the "Dr. Phil" show, but it has also caused new discussions, such as how to release upcoming blockbuster films, such as "Wonder Woman 1984." Additionally, it has sparked an increased interest in illegal file-sharing of a specific movie.
