One of the earliest realities of the spread of Coronavirus was the news emanating from celebrities across the world. As expected, many of them took to social media to communicate their test results and responded quite positively. Also, each of them made it clear that the next thing would be to self-isolate themselves while depending on social media to communicate with the world.
Perhaps it is not so surprising for celebrities because they spend reasonable hours in one event or the other. When one tests positive, it automatically warrants that many who have come in contact with him in the past few weeks may also have contacted it. And so, it is that most celebrities and their better halves tested positive to the COVID19 virus while awaiting a quick recovery. In due time, some of them have recovered while some are still in the process.
List of the Top 5 Celebrities who contacted the Coronavirus
1. IDRIS ELBA AND SABRINA DHOWRE ELBA
The two lovely couples met in 2017, and it ignited a “love at first sight” for Idris, who was on a movie set. But on March 16, the popular actor shared a clip via his Instagram handle alongside his model wife that he just tested positive to the virus. Earlier, he claimed to have been exposed to someone else who had tested positive. He further encouraged everyone to remain vigilant, wash their hands regularly, and maintain social distancing. Afterward, the wife also contracted the virus, obviously from the husband.
2. BORIS JOHNSON
The British Prime Minister declared his status via Tweeter and also went into isolation on March 27. Johnson, 55, tweeted, “Over the last 24 hours, I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus.” He started with mild symptoms but consequently deteriorated and had to be taken into the intensive care unit on April 6. The recovery was quick, and he was discharged on April 12.
3. TOM HANKS AND RITA WILSON
When Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks tested positive to the Coronavirus with his wife, they retreated to Australia for isolation. Hanks broke the news on Instagram in March, saying, “We were tested for the coronavirus and were found to be positive.” He added, “We felt a bit tired like we had colds, and some body aches.
