At the request of the New York Governor's Office, acting veterans Danny DeVito and Robert De Niro have put out Public Service Announcements on the coronavirus, asking people to stay at home.

DeVito told people in his video, which has amassed nearly three million views on Twitter, that his life was on the line, saying "young people can get it and they can transmit to old people and the next thing you know, I'm out of there."

He suggested they watch some television instead of going out.

De Niro said, "Please, I'm watching you," while urging people to stay at home.
