Canada's top health officials have warned that if we do not "flatten the curve" of COVID-19 infections, Canadian hospitals could be overwhelmed with patients, many of whom would die.
Canadians have been asked to stay home as much as possible and maintain two metres of distance when they are out in public. Provinces have taken their own drastic measures to restrict businesses.
Bublé has since taken his message to social media, and to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau — with whom he said he's been speaking daily about the crisis.
Raptors' Serge Ibaka adjusts to life in self-quarantine
The Toronto Raptors veteran is documenting his experience of being in self-quarantine during the coronavirus outbreak.After Utah Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Raptors put themselves in self-quarantine for 14 days in risk of being exposed to the virus after playing Utah Monday.
"When I first wrote Justin and his cabinet, I actually said, 'listen, we're at war. It's as simple as that. We're at war and it's time to respect our enemy.'"
But given the potential deadly effects of the novel coronavirus spreading unchecked, Bublé said he's been disappointed to see many people flouting the directions of health officials.
"We were dumbfounded, dumbfounded by the fact that people were [seen] playing beer pong," in B.C. he said.
"The social distancing thing had become a distant memory because it was a lot more fun to be selfish and do what you want to do."
They’re playing beer pong. I can’t. I just. I can’t.

Bublé said it is up to Canadians to be responsible in the face of the pandemic, otherwise he believes the government will crack down and impose more strict, mandatory measures.
But he said that outcome shouldn't be necessary.
"The prime minister is really counting on us as Canadians to be true to our best nature, but I also think his patience is running out in a big way," he said.
"It really depends on us ... There are so many beautiful patriots out there, and you know it, and I notice that so many have stayed home."
