According to HuffPost, Campbell is already known for her hygiene game at airports. In 2019, the supermodel shared a video to show that she always comes to the airport ready to fight germs. Equipped with wipes and gloves, she revealed that she is super careful about everything she touches on an airplane.
"Clean everything you touch, anything that you put your hands on," she said in the video as she literally cleans every piece of equipment in front of her before she takes a seat on the plane.
The model's latest outfit got plenty of reactions on social media.
"I’m screaming. Naomi Campbell was BORN ready for this crisis. She did not come to play with you viral heauxes. KNOW HER," wrote Saeed Jones on Twitter.

I honestly wonder if she’s immunocompromised or just incredibly cautious! Either way, look for these ensembles on the resort & fall runways— kate gorton (@KGisWriting) March 11, 2020
Based on the reactions, there's a slight possibility that hazmat suits could soon be the latest trends.
