Beyoncé's Daughter Films ‘DIY Experiment’ Illustrating Benefits of Hand-Washing

April 19, 2020

Blue Ivy Carter showed off her scientific prowess in a video posted to Instagram by her grandmother, in which the 8-year-old illustrates the benefits of hand-washing amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

"Blue's PSA ... My brilliant granddaughter Blue did this experiment to show how washing your hands fights the virus," Tina Lawson captioned the minute-long video, during which the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z uses a bowl of water mixed with pepper to represent the coronavirus. She dips her finger in soap and then touches the water and pepper mix, which causes the pepper to immediattely move away from her fingertip.

Educating the public about coronavirus has been a family affair this weekend.

Beyoncé on Saturday appeared on the "One World: Together at Home" special to address how African Americans have a higher COVID-19 mortality rate.

"Black Americans disproportionately belong to these essential parts of the workforce that do not have the luxury of working from home," Beyoncé said. "And African American communities at large have been severely affected in this crisis. Those with pre-existing conditions are at an even higher risk. This virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate here in America."
