Perry had been in Australia to perform at a bushfire relief concert.
Bloom had a message for his followers and the world in his video.
“Big love everybody, stay safe out there,” he said. “Self-quarantine. It seems really crazy actually this whole corona thing, but do the right thing by you and your family and stay safe.”
