Jackie Chan assures fans he's safe from coronavirus


At last check more than 84,000 people have been sickened and nearly 2,900 have died from COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus.

With most of the infections in mainland China and nearly 100 in Hong Kong, there has been growing concern that Jackie Chan may be among those affected, either with the virus or under quarantine.

On Thursday, the global movie star, 65, took to his website and social media to assure fans he's alright.   

'Thanks for everybody's concern! I'm safe and sound, and very healthy,' he shared on Instagram. 'Please don't worry, I'm not in quarantine. I hope everyone stays safe and healthy too!'

Turns out the Hong Kong native has been receiving gifts, including face masks, from people all over the world as fear of the virus spreads. 

'I've also received some very special gifts from fans all over the world during this very difficult time,' Chan added in a statement on www.jackiechan.com.

'Thank you for the face masks. Your thoughtfulness is well received! And I've asked my lovely staff to donate your kindness through official organisations to those who need it most.'

The release of Chan's new Chinese action film, Vanguard, was postponed in January due to concerns of the potential spread of the coronavirus in movie theaters.
