A Lot of Our Favorite Celebrities, Like Idris Elba, Are Getting Coronavirus


It might seem strange to say this, but celebrities are probably a high-risk group for a global pandemic like the 2019 novel coronavirus COVID-19. But they’re flying around the world, in airplanes which are great breeding grounds for diseases like this. And now a lot of them have it.

For starters, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have it. You can do the whole “Rita Wilson and her husband I’m a feminist” joke all of social media and John Oliver have been doing if you can name one thing Rita Wilson has been in without googling her. Yeah, that’s what I thought. She was Fraiser’s mom on that episode where he dates the woman who looks like his mom.

Idris Elba also has the coronavirus, despite not showing any symptoms. Elba is British, so he’s properly freaking out because British Prime Minister Posh Donald Trump’s strategy for dealing with the disease is “eh, f**k it, it’ll probably work out.”

Former Bond Girl Olga Ker… Kir… Kurylenko also has the coronavirus.

If she needs someone to rub her down with disinfectant twice a day I’m down. That’s what you’re supposed to do, right?

Kristofer Hivju played Tormund Giantsbane on Game of Thrones and not only did he never got to bang Brienne of Tarth, now he’s got the coronavirus. I’m not saying those things are related, I’m just saying Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is fine so far.

So who is gonna get it next? Not Mel Brooks, that’s for damn sure.

It’s good advice, you should take it.
