BTS deliver a video message about COVID-19.

BTS took to social media on Sunday (March 22) to share a message of hope amidst the global coronavirus pandemic.

Addressing the A.R.M.Y., the boy band created the video after being nominated by the cadets of the Korea Armed Forces Nursing Academy. "We want to thank the nursing officers, medical staff and everyone battling this virus to protect the safety and lives of the people," they say in the clip. "We realize more than ever how meaningful our everyday life was. Standing on a stage facing empty seats, we realize how precious each moment with you was."

The K-pop idols also remind fans to stay connected despite current social distancing and quarantine measures being taken around the globe, saying, "I think the hardest thing may be that we are feeling more and more isolated. But guys, we are connected closely and share both pain and joy. If we have the courage and will to overcome anything, I'm sure we'll succeed with the power of our connection."

BTS' home country of South Korea has been ravaged by the coronavirus in recent months, being the worst-hit Asian nation outside of China with nearly 9,000 reported cases and over 100 deaths. However, the spread of the virus appears to finally be slowing there, with the lowest number of new cases being reported in the country on Sunday since February.
