Amanda Kloots shared a cute photo of her late husband Nick Cordero and 1-year-old son Elvis on Thursday to warn others to take coronavirus seriously.

Cordero died on July 5, aged 41, just four months after being diagnosed with COVID-19. The Broadway actor spent the last part of his life in the hospital, facing one setback after another.

Kloots, who was regularly informed of Cordero’s condition, has continued to inform supporters of her grief. The fitness trainer also used her platform to emphasize the severity of the virus. On Thursday she took both a cute picture of Cordero and Elvis who were sleeping. She said it was taken a year ago when she found the two napping.

“I still can’t believe there are people who believe this disease is a joke, something that won’t happen to them,” said Kloots. “COVID doesn’t care how old you are or whether you are [sic] a new father and husband. “

Kloots and Cordero were married in September 2017.

She asked people to do everything they can to stay healthy and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“If my heart breaks, it’s because I see pictures like this, which Elvis will miss in his life because Nick is gone,” she said. “Please wear a mask and take it seriously as the numbers are increasing every day.”

Kloots will soon have an even larger audience than the impressive following she has found online. The Talk announced on Tuesday that she would be participating in the show as a full-time host in 2021. She has been a guest co-host since October.

“I’m thrilled and honored to be joining this incredible cast and crew,” said Kloots New Year’s Eve with honest and thought-provoking discussions mixed with lots of fun and laughter. “
