Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey has urged people to stay indoors during “these rough and tumble times”.
The Oscar-winning star shared a video to Instagram, telling fans that isolating is “not only the best defence against this virus, it’s the best offence”.
He said: “If you stay at home you’re not being passive, you’re not being cowardly, you’re actually being brave, courageous, you’re playing offence.
She said: “During this time of quarantine, I hope you are all being strong and lifting each other up. My prayers with you.”
