Which Celebrities, Athletes and Public Figures have been Diagnosed with Coronavirus?

The coronavirus has spread to 123 countries, with more than 135,400 confirmed cases and over 5,000 related deaths as of Friday afternoon.

Now a pandemic, the virus has become so widespread, not even famous faces are immune to COVID-19, which has forced the closure of Broadway shows, countless TV and movie productions, gatherings and live shows.

Celebrity power couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were the first well-known figures to announce they were diagnosed during a trip to Australia, where they are now quarantined. The scale of the coronavirus, unfortunately, has led to more public figures revealing their positive coronavirus diagnoses as the world grapples to contain the spread of the deadly virus. Others, like Emily Ratajkowski, Orlando Bloom and Charles Barkley, have publicly announced they are self-isolating as a precaution, while some like Naomi Campbell in her extreme hazmat suit, are sharing hygiene advice amid the pandemic.

Here’s a growling list of the A-listers, athletes and prominent figures with confirmed cases. This list will be updated as more announcements are made, although The Post sincerely hopes no one else falls victim to the coronavirus.

Celebrities

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson

The actor and actress, both 63, were in Australia when their tests came back positive with the virus, they said Wednesday. The couple gave an update Thursday on their health, and their sons Chet, 29, and Colin, 42, also reassured fans that the two didn’t seem to have severe symptoms. True to form, Hanks made light of the scary situation by quoting his infamous “A League of Their Own” character.

“We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else,” he wrote on Instagram. “There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx.”

  1. Pres Trump still isn’t taking this seriously. If Italy can test 1000 people in one day, and the US only 100, there is a terrible and unnecessary shortage in our country, leading to much more illness and ultimately death. He needs to stop shaking hands on tv, delay his golf game and put an executive order to quadruple the manufacturing of test kits. That might not be enough; but it’s a start. I was intending to vote for him but not sure now.

    • He’s done far more than you are aware of, definitely not reported in MSM. please reconsider your vote. That alternatives would be disastrous!

    • Fran, where did you get that ridiculous information. I heard NY governor this very morning saying that they were testing thousands… lol…. It isn’t like we had advance warning of this thing, and it isn’t like any other virus we’ve battled in the past. it mutates, it is highly contagious, many have it and don’t bother to get tested because they have no symptoms.. You need to read up on this a bit, wouldn’t you say?
      President Trump is the reason we’re not like Italy! He closed our borders to more than a dozen countries as soon as anyone realized what we’re facing. He is trying to help all of us, read about his stimulus package, dear, it might make you feel better about life.
      Let’s all pull together, help each other out, stay away from this virus, don’t spread it if you think you have it, do what you know is best for yourself, your family and all Americans. God bless us all.

    • Fran. How dare you imply that our leader is playing golf at a time like this. Lets see you keep up with a work schedule like his before you make this type of insinuation. Just state your case…you may have something worth considering to share…and then shut up.

  2. Let me know when RBG, Sotomeyer, and the other LBQ chick get it.

  3. God is here, he has been here, we are just finally listening. Like past epidemics and plagues, this to shall pass as we fine a vaccine so we can’t stop the virus and move forward, This global pandemic should teach us a lesson to be a few steps ahead and no be so relaxed and naive! Cleanliness is always close to Godliness, that said, it’s definitely a wake up call for the world. Let’s take care of purse es, fine a cure for the infected, help the sick and those in need, show our generosity, our human kindness, our intelligence and our skills! Let’s NOT continue to destroy our one and only planet we survive in and ourselves anymore. It’s time fir a change and rethink our future! My heart, thoughts and prayers go out for all who have been diagnosed, those sick and the care takers as well as their families and friends. We all need to pray to God for global healing, his mercy, his grace and have him shield us with his feather from evil and all harm! We are in this together as one human race! Let’s not forget our pets and the animals too. Please, take care of yourselves. God bless us all. Peace be with you! Keep your head held high, positive happy thoughts and love all as well as share the love! Love heals and loving God will destroys all darkness upon us! xoxoxo
