Harry Styles Reveals He’s Been Keeping Himself Entertained By Learning Italian And Sign Language In Isolation Amid Coronavirus Pandemic
Harry shared his quarantine schedule: ‘It’s a little difficult but it’s alright, I’m lucky I’m with friends in our little safe self-isolation pod.
‘It’s a strange time but we’re just being careful, listening to music, playing games, doing some face masks, you know, the classic quarantine stuff!
‘Now is the perfect time to learn a new skill and try a new hobby or something, right? We have nothing but time. I was learning Italian and doing some sign language classes. I’ve also been reading, checking on people, that’s it really.’
Harry was scheduled to headline the station’s Big Weekend festival later this year, but BBC announced its cancellation amid coronavirus fears.
It is unclear whether the artist will embark on his worldwide tour next month, with his string of performances expected to take place in the UK, North and South America, and Australia.
Coronavirus was classed a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) last week, leading countries such as Italy, Spain and China to implement nationwide lockdowns.
As of Thursday, 104 people have died out of 2,626 confirmed cases in the UK.
Sporting events, music festival and other social gatherings have been either cancelled or postponed due to the crisis.
Elsewhere, his former bandmate Niall Horan treated fans to a peek at his home as he FaceTimed Capital Breakfast hosts Roman Kemp and Sonny Jay while self-isolating on Thursday.
The Irish belter, 26, panned his phone around his abode, which boasts a wide TV, comfy sofas and a classic piano to help him pen his chart-topping hits.
On his experience with being in quarantine, the media personality said: ‘I think everyone thinks it’s all a bit strange and a bit weird.
‘You look in the streets and they’re all empty, it’s just a weird time. In terms of work its obviously been hard for me, I’ve just released an album in the worst timing possible, in the history of man-kind. But I mean this way we have FaceTime and I can speak to your beautiful face.’
Admitting he hasn’t left his home for a ‘very long period’, he added: ‘I went for a run yesterday, strange to be on your own for this amount of time. I need my friends back.
