Sam Neill has joined the online performances during self-isolation.
The “Jurassic Park” alum posted a video of himself on the ukulele singing Radiohead’s “Creep”.
“This butchering of the song is to inspire people to stay home and find something creative to do even if it is ruining a Radiohead song. I love Radiohead so much,” Niell said. “It’s for all the people who weren’t in the first 15 and weren’t in the cheerleading squad. We just wanted to be special.”
He then added, “Look I know so many of us are afraid and anxious at the moment but don’t be afraid, don’t be anxious, we will get through this thing. We will probably end up being tazzled and frayed at the end of it. I know it is easy to spiral down to ‘what’s the worst thing that could happen?’ But I am encouraging you to spiral up and think ‘what’s the best thing that could happen?'”
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
