Danny Devito is begging people to stay inside to prevent the spread of the coronavirus to the most vulnerable members of the population.

“Hi everybody, it’s Danny DeVito, and I’m asking you from the bottom of my heart all over the state of New York to say home,” the actor said in a video from ABC News.

DeVito put emphasis on the need to protect the elderly, who are at a greater risk of not surviving the virus than younger people or people with stronger immune systems.
