Tom Hanks and wife are the first celebrities reporting being tested positive for coronavirus. Perhaps that will help to illuminate the severity of the crisis, that it’s striking everywhere and is no respecter of persons. Washington Post:
“Rita had some chills that came and went,” he continued. “Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.” A representative for Hanks confirmed the news as shared on social media.
This story broke only a few hours after the one about the NBA annoouncing it was suspending it’s season due to a Utah Jazz player testing positive.
Meanwhile, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, speaking on a panel on CNN pulled up the data on the CDC website showing that the Center for Disease Control did no coronavirus tests in the past 24 hours, and the Public Health Department did eight. Our government is at a standstill and the coronavirus is working with lightning speed. There may be some truth to what Trump’s former aide said, “We’re about ten days from hospitals being creamed.”
