Jared Leto Just Found Out About the Coronavirus

Jared Leto isn’t feeling so zen after his 12-day meditation retreat.

Monday on social media, the Oscar winner revealed he had been off the grid for nearly two weeks while sequestered in the desert.

“Wow. 12 days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert. We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication etc. We had no idea what was happening outside the facility,” the “Suicide Squad” actor announced.

When he returned home on Sunday, the 48-year-old received a flood of messages from loved ones, presumably about the coronavirus pandemic.

“Walked out yesterday into a very different world. One that’s been changed forever. Mind blowing - to say the least. I’m getting messages from friends and family all around the globe and catching up on what’s going on,” he wrote.

In the past 12 days when Leto was away, numerous states have banned large gatherings, and have closed bars, gyms, movie theaters, and restaurants — with the exception of delivery and/or takeout — to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The Thirty Seconds to Mars front man concluded, “Hope you and yours are ok. Sending positive energy to all. Stay inside. Stay safe.”

At a Tuesday news conference, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice announced that his state had confirmed its first case of coronavirus — which means COVID-19 has spread to all 50 in the U.S.

As of this writing, CNN reports that the virus has killed 100 Americans so far.
