Actor Jackie Chan confirmed he has not been quarantined amid the worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus.

Chan took to his Instagram on Thursday to assure fans he was doing perfectly fine.

“Thanks for everybody’s concern! I’m safe and sound, and very healthy,” Chan shared with a photo of himself. “Please don’t worry, I’m not in quarantine. I hope everyone stays safe and healthy too!”

Chan claimed he had received many gifts from fans, including face masks, and would be donating the supplies to various organizations.

The actor’s newest film “Vanguard” was pulled from theaters in an effort to stop the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, Chan offered a $197,000 reward for anyone who could come up with an antidote for the virus.
