Angelina Jolie tipped those quarantined during the coronavirus epidemic.
The 44-year-old actress spoke with California general surgeon Dr. Nadine Burke Harris for Time magazine to discuss the current situation.
Burke Harris stressed that people should reach out in the middle of self-isolation – a statement that Jolie agreed with.

“I think it’s so important that people hear this,” said the actress. “To love yourself, check with each other. Be there, be a support group, keep your eyes open, whether you are a teacher or a friend. “
Jolie said it was important for people to reach out at times like these when the details of someone’s life in the background are not as easy to spot.
“I really hope people hear that, and they reach out, and they pay more attention, and they’re not sitting at a time when they think,” Maybe, but it’s not my affair, “said Jolie. Because these children are not going to school right now, and the teachers cannot see the bruises and people do not identify what is going on in some homes. “
Burke Harris went on to say that “all the research shows that the most powerful antidote to trauma and adversity is nurturing and nurturing relationships with others – safe, stable and nurturing relationships.”

“All you have to do is be there for one person,” said Burke Harris, referring to victims of domestic violence. “All you have to do is believe them when a victim shows up. “
The surgeon general continued, “You don’t have to fix it, you don’t have to fix it. You don’t have to worry about not being enough. You just have to be ready to be there and listen and be that shoulder and those arms open. ”
Accompanying the video chat between Burke Harris and Jolie was an editorial written by the actress, in which she said that while children seem to be less susceptible to the virus, they are “particularly vulnerable to so many side effects” that it brings .
“Isolating a victim from family and friends is a well-known tactic of attacker control, which means that the social distancing that is necessary to stop COVID-19 is a tactic that will inadvertently fuel a direct increase in trauma and suffering of vulnerable children, “wrote the star” Maleficent. “

Jolie noted that children have also lost the ability to connect with those they trust in their lives such as teachers and friends, as well as the opportunity to participate in sports and other activities that relieve and escape to situations of violence.
“For many students, schools are a lifeline and a shield, offering protection – or at least a temporary reprieve – from violence, exploitation and other difficult circumstances, including sexual exploitation , forced marriage and child labor, ”writes Jolie.
She also pointed out that it is usually third parties who report child abuse, such as a teacher or coach – contact with them has been limited since the lockdown began.
