Arnold Schwarzenegger: Coronavirus Is Real, Stay At Home
Finally, after weeks and months of warnings, celebrities are pitching in and using their platforms to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Many are now reminding their followers daily to #FlattenTheCurve! If you’re somehow still out of the loop, it means stay home and only leave for the necessities: groceries, pet walks, etc. Meanwhile, also make sure to avoid crowds, wash your hands, and take care of your loved ones. As a result, we can all alleviate the strain on the medical system during the coronavirus pandemic.
Recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s coronavirus PSA went particularly viral. On Sunday, the iconic actor and previous mayor of California uploaded a sweet video of him feeding his two pets, miniature horse Whiskey and donkey Lulu. In it, Schwarzenegger also told his 4.4 million followers to “stay at home” and “wash their hands.”
Watching Out For People Who Are In Higher Risk Groups
The Hollywood icon reminded his fans that there are people at higher risk from the effects of the coronavirus. So, the extra precautions we take are for them, not the young and healthy. “See, the important thing is that you stay at home because there’s a curfew now. No one is allowed out. Especially someone who is, like, 72 years old (referring to himself). After you are 65, you are not allowed out of the house anymore in California. So we stay home, and we eat here,” Schwarzenegger said.
The star also shared: “We don’t go out, we don’t go to restaurants, we don’t do anything like that anymore here.”
“We Need To Make Social Sacrifices Right Now”
Other celebrities have also used their platforms to encourage people to stay at home and safe during the coronavirus pandemic. Lady Gaga wrote on her Instagram, “It’s not the easiest for everyone right now, but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups. I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now, but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this.”
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift shared that she knows it’s scary times, but she wants followers to stay safe. She wrote she’s concerned over seeing “lots of get-togethers and hangs and parties still happening.” She added, “This is the time to cancel plans, actually truly isolate as much as you can, and don’t assume that because you don’t feel sick that you aren’t possibly passing something on to someone elderly or vulnerable to this… It’s a really scary time, but we need to make social sacrifices right now,” she concluded. We could not agree more, T-Swift!
