We’re living in unprecedented times as the rapidly spreading Coronavirus shuts down cities, cripples entire countries, destroys the economy and terrifies anxious citizens across the world struggling to stay positive during these stressful times.
For weeks, many scoffed at the highly contagious virus while refusing to take recommended precautions. Right-wing media, along with our our dumb-as-rocks President, called it a hoax and successfully made the crisis even worse by parroting dangerous rhetoric, conspiracy theories and misinformation.
It wasn’t until beloved actor Tom Hanks tested positive that stubborn Americans (who were still frolocking around town and possibly spreading the virus) started taking the threat seriously.
Soon, more high-profile celebs like Idris Elba, Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell and even crowd-pleasing “Game of Thrones” actor Kristofer Hivju (Tormund) tested positive in a shocking development that prompted us to make this comprehensive (and ever-growing) list with the virus.
Hit the flip for a list of stars, pro athletes & notable figures diagnosed with Coronavirus.
