The easiest way to get through this is to send the link to your friends. Make sure that they open it in a browser window where they are already signed into their Netflix accounts.

The Coronavirus outbreak has over 2,19,700 cases across the globe right now. The disease has also claimed the lives of over 8,900 patients so far. The outbreak was recently declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).  Many countries have implemented measures to stop the spread of the virus. This includes canceling foreign VISAs and shutting down large public spaces like malls. As a general precaution, people in many countries including India have been asked to stay at home as much as possible.
