Taking to Twitter, the husband-wife duo shared a video, urging fans to stay at home and requesting them to follow the guidelines issued by the government.

“For the next 21 days, you will be required to exercise caution, take precautions and behave responsibly to tackle the coronavirus crisis. Stay at home to prevent you and your family from contracting the infection. It’s imperative that you don’t break the curfew. Making noise and gathering in large groups will not drive the virus away.
