Coronavirus continues to disturb countries worldwide and has led to changes in almost every aspect of human lives. One such change is the restriction to social interaction, with people having to stay at home to help curb the spread of the virus. 

Sir Elton John is also staying indoors and encouraged his fans to do the same with a recent post on Instagram, which featured a picture of the singer smiling and holding a sign.

On the sign was an inscription, "IStayHomeFor David Furnish, Zachary, and Elijah." The names on the inscription are that of Elton's husband and two sons.

In the caption to the post, the "Sacrifice" singer explained that the hashtag was part of steps to encourage people to stay indoors and prevent coronavirus from spreading. He wrote:

"Thank-you @kevinbacon...#IstayHomeFor @davidfurnish and our boys. Today it's snakes, ladders, and staying inside to stop the spread of coronavirus."

The singer continued by asking his fans who they were staying at home for and urged them to post their photo version of "#StayHomeFor," in which they would be holding a sign like the one he held. 

He also said that they should tag six of their friends, and ask them to do the same. Concluding his caption, Sir Elton revealed his six nominations for the challenge. 

The decision to end the concert prematurely was an overwhelming and emotional experience for the legend

The 72-year-old musical icon is self-isolating in his Los Angeles mansion, which he bought at the cost of over $7 million in 2012, and is one of the six properties he owns. 

Sir Elton John was last seen in concert in Australia earlier in the month, where he performed on his "Farewell Brick Road Tour." He has, however, postponed the American leg of the tour over coronavirus fears.

Back in February, the singer was in concert in Auckland, New Zealand. That experience turned out to be short-lived after he ended it earlier than planned over health concerns. 

The decision to end the concert prematurely was an overwhelming and emotional experience for the legend, to the extent that he broke down in tears while leaving the stage.

After ending his performance on the night, Sir Elton John stood up and said farewell to the audience. He then began to sob, lowering his head on his piano for some time. Stagehands stepped in and led him out of the stage. 

The wonderful audience at the Mt. Smart Stadium in Auckland continued to cheer the icon throughout his emotional moment.  Elton John later tweeted and revealed that he was diagnosed with walking pneumonia earlier that day, but was determined to give his best performance.
