    Default Famous people with Covid-19: Putting faces on the Crisis

    (If this thread is not ok, I understand if the mods will delete it. My goal is not to "name and shame" people, but I think this pandemic is very abstract to many people, which is why they don't protect themselves properly. Putting faces to this crisis is a way to make it more real.)

    1. Prince Charles, Prince of Wales.




    Diagnosed with the disease.

    Floor Jansen, lead singer of Nightwish, may have it. She's been sick for days with a high fever and has put herself in isolation just in case. Still awaiting test results.

    Friedrich Merz, one of Angela Merkel's most likely successors, also tested positive.

    .... just after ignoring government advice against large gatherings and holding a rally with 700 people.

    If he survives, could he become the German Trump?

    Wow....didn't know about some of these. It still is a bit mysterious how to me how it's getting passed around. If someone in the Royal Family has it, one wonders who he came in contact with? I assume they stopped the usual hand shaking during ceremonies etc. a while ago. And Weinstein was in a couple of correctional facilities recently and a van that transported him.

    NBA players ...

    Kevin Durant




    And Donovan Mitchell



    Controversy was caused when pretty much their entire teams got tested quickly, while regular folks often still find it almost impossible to find out if they contracted the virus or not.
