What is it that's causing this deadly virus?

There have been many theories...

But it is widely believed that the sale of meat from wild animals is the prime cause of the coronavirus.

Bats are believed to be one of the main culprits...

Strains of the virus have been discovered in bats in the past and, with them being a delicacy in some areas of China, they are believed to be one of the primary causes.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a few weeks ago that it expects the coronavirus to spread in the United States and has asked Americans to prepare for when the virus hits, not if, CNN reported.

Preparations are underway...

And this most certainly doesn't exclude the rich and famous.

More and more are turning to self-isolation to protect themselves.

Especially the elderly, who are more susceptible to infection.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is no ordinary exception.

The seventy-two-year-old posted a video to Twitter on Sunday night. The video shows him sat at home, casually feeding his pet horse and donkey... as you do. In the video, he made an announcement about the importance of staying at home to avoid contracting the virus.

He referenced that people over sixty-five are being advised to self-isolate.

Schwarzenegger said: "See the important thing is that you stay at home because there's a curfew now."

He continues...

"We stay home, and we eat here," he says, while feeding a carrot to his tiny horse, Whisky, alongside his donkey, Lulu. "Oh yes, that's yummy."

The video was incredibly wholesome.

"Lulu loves carrots, Whisky loves carrots, I just had my little bit of vegan food," says Schwarzenegger. "See that's what we do, we don't go out, we don't go to restaurants, we don't do anything like that anymore here. We just eat with Whisky and with Lulu, we have a good time."

To be fair, I wish I was invited.

This isn't the first time Schwarzenegger shared his advice while being self-isolated in his home.

He shared this video a couple of days ago...

It was a handwashing tutorial featuring his pet dog Jerry. In times like these, we can only hope for more heartwarming content like this.
