Jared Leto may have been one of the last people to learn of the coronavirus outbreak. The singer/actor was on a 12-day retreat where outside contact wasn't allowed. He says there was no phone allowed or any communication outside the facility. He says when he left the silent meditation retreat and learned the news, his mind was blown. He's now entered his own self-isolation where h says he's making new music.
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.— JARED LETO (@JaredLeto) March 17, 2020
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.— JARED LETO (@JaredLeto) March 17, 2020
The cast of German "Big Brother" also just found out the news when the show's producers decided the break protocol and tell them. They took it pretty well and received some much-needed messages from home.
