Washington D.C. [USA], Mar 25 (ANI): In a bid to combat the spread of the coronavirus, actor Robert De Niro shared a video message for his followers urging them to stay indoors during this trying time.

In the shared 24-second long video, the actor who is seen at the comfort of his house begins the video by saying "Hello, this is Robert De Niro. We all need to stay home."
"We need to stop the spread of this virus and we can only do it together. Not just to protect ourselves but to protect others and all the older people you love. Please... I'm watching you," he added.
