Thank you for linking to those interesting articles, Nils. The first one is from the sleazy jewish media outlet Buzzfeed, the one that published the ridiculous and disgusting "Golden Shower Gate" dossier according to which the Russian government was blackmailing president Trump because they had footage of him paying some hookers to urinate on his hotel bed in Moscow. Of course, this was never proven, but since when do jews care about facts?
Jonah Peretti (born January 1, 1974) is an Internet entrepreneur, a cofounder and the CEO of BuzzFeed, cofounder of The Huffington Post, and developer of reblogging under the project "Reblog". (…) his mother (née Cherkin), a schoolteacher, is Jewish.
Anyway, the Buzzfeed article in your link is a bizarre sob story that's supposed to make us feel sorry for prostitutes, strippers and dominatrixes who are now losing money because of the Chinese virus outbreak. Here are some excerpts:
Sex Workers Are Facing Increasingly Risky Conditions As The Coronavirus Spreads
Sex workers are losing money because of the coronavirus. Advocates say that means they’re more likely to face exploitation.

Sex workers are facing dire financial and personal circumstances as fear of the coronavirus extends into every corner of life, with some under pressure to work in increasingly risky conditions.
Escorts, strippers, dominatrixes, and an intimacy coach told BuzzFeed News they had lost thousands of dollars due to canceled conferences, travel restrictions, and clients’ fears of being in public spaces.
Porn performers have been advised to stockpile video content to release in the event that the industry shuts down, but the most vulnerable sex workers face the threat of exploitation and homelessness.
As public health departments recommend "social distancing," the sex workers whom BuzzFeed News spoke to explained how they’re planning to continue to support themselves while trying to protect their health in the midst of a global pandemic.
“I have a house and a car. I have a mouth to feed. I don’t have time for a stupid virus to stop my money flow,”said Carly, a stripper in Seattle who asked to be identified by her stage name for privacy reasons.
Lady A, a dominatrix in the city, said she’s been losing at least $500 a week since concerns about the virus hit, and that the three women she shares a workspace with have faced the same. “We would usually do, say, three clients per day in that space,” Lady A, who asked to be identified by her professional pseudonym to maintain her privacy, told BuzzFeed News.
Now look at the first picture in that article:
Jade, an escort who lives in Austin, said she is asking clients to wash their hands for 30 seconds to protect against the coronavirus.
Apparently, that's what "escorts" (i.e. "classy" hookers) look like in the United States.
