Matthew McConaughey believes self-isolation ‘isn’t a retreat’ amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ‘Interstellar’ star Matthew McConaughey is urging fans to stay at home. The 50-year-old took to Instagram to show clips of doctors and nurses working tirelessly in a bid to treat the novel coronavirus.
In the video, McConaughey says:
We are at war with a virus, and health care troops and first responders are on the frontline fighting it every day. Let’s join the fight by staying home.
The actor worth a staggering $95 million continues, “Staying home is not a retreat. It’s the most brave and aggressive weapon we have against this enemy.”
Matthew believes when all of us stay at home, we help prevent our hospitals from getting overwhelmed. This ultimately helps the scientists buy the time they need to discover the vaccine, the only way we can beat this illness in the long run.
McConaughey, who's married to wife Camila Alves, is well-known for performing several voice portrayals for significant causes. However, this is pretty special as he wrote and created the PSA with his mate Roy Spence.
Meanwhile, citizens across the nation have been ordered to stay at home across several states, most notably California and New York; the latter serving as the epicenter of the virus, where over 8,000 people have lost their lives so far.
