Top 10 Famous People Infected by the COVID-19 Virus (Coronavirus)With over 150,000 infections and 5,000 deaths as of now, COVID-19 has infected more than 150 countries. Being a virus that spreads through contact surfaces, it is not surprising that if you meet more people, you're more likely to get infected. So unsurprisingly, quite a few prominent individuals have been infected by this illness and this is a list of them.
The Top Ten
The NBA players and other young healthy people won't be affected much at all. Tom Hanks is pretty old. If he barely gets sick and recovers quickly, Americans will realize this is no worse than the regular flu, which can still be bad for the very old or those already sick.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson had the virus mildly. Rita Wilson had it when she entered Australia. An Australian TV celebrity caught the virus from her.
He and his wife supposedly were diagnosed in a film set-up in Australia and were one of the first celebrities to go public with their infection.
Tom Hanks & Rita have been well for a while now.
I read that Rita Wilson had the Coronavirus when she entered Australia.
He had the virus more severely than anyone else on this list & could've died. Rita Wilson had coronavirus when she entered Australia & neither she nor Tom Hanks had it seriously.
Loads of the people on this list just had it mildly. BoJo Actually had to go into intensive care. The government tried to make out that it was just a pro-caution, but when you give people the new that their PM could 'wave today' it makes it sound a little more serious
His name is as ridiculous as he is: Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson truly unique
Definitely not a BoJo the Brexiteer supporter but congrats on not dying all the same
Also how are you and you secret cousin Donald getting along?
BoJo has been very will with Coronavirus and in hospital but he's slowly improving although it will probably some time before he's really well again.
She's an American actress and the wife of Tom Hanks. She has been infected by the new coronavirus. She says on social media that she has made a playlist titled "Quarantunes" for those who are undergoing self-isolation due to this virus which can be found here

Poor KD. Luckily he is showing no symptoms.
Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell had tested positive for the virus.
Mitchell's positive test was not known until early Thursday, the first full day of the NBA's hiatus.
The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement that his wife had contracted the illness, and both he and his wife are kept in isolation and that he himself doesn't show any symptoms so far.

We don't have to worry about queen Elizabeth getting it. She is immortal.
Pretty much. Can't imagine the country without her because for a large proportion of the population, she has been queen for the entirety of there lives and she id such an important person and has her face on all the coins
That's really sad. I haven't been super updated on Coronavirus-- is he okay?
More famous than anyone else on this list.
The most famous person of all.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, four days after the mayor attended a Miami event with a Brazilian government official who later tested positive for the virus.
Italian soccer club Juventus announced on March 11 that defender Daniele Rugani has tested positive for new coronavirus. An international footballer, he is the first player in Italy’s top soccer division to test positive but Juventus stressed that the 25-year-old has no symptoms.
He is the manager of the Arsenal football club who has tested positive for COVID-19 and consequently, all of the Arsenal staff and players would be in isolation for the next 14 days.
This pretty much caused the EPL to shut down.
He was the first NBA player to become infected and he later had to apologise on social media for touching every microphone and voice recorder systems during a press conference.
You should have washed your hands bastard!
71 year's old and its almost certain he wont survive.
He is the Communications Director in Brazil and is known to act as a personal aide to the Brazilian President. Wajngarten initially denied a report on Wednesday that he had been tested for the virus, saying on his social media account that his health was fine. After the test results returned as positive, he is now in self-quarantine at home, and is being treated appropriately, according to the statement.
he is almost recovered already
I'm sorry, but coronavirus has declared war on me. There are few celebrities that I actually care for on this list (or for that matter, recognize,) but this is war.
No one DESERVES to have the Coronavirus, no matter what they've done. The Coronavirus is a terrible thing to wish on someone and you shouldn't be happy about someone getting it or say someone 'deserves' to have it. Still, I respect your opinion and he did do many bad things. I am not writing this to defend his actions or make you feel bad about writing your opinion, I just feel like I had to get a point accross.
He deserves it, he's a rapist
oh poor andy cohen I like him
He's better, I think.
Really? She had the coronavirus?
OMG her son has it!?!?!?
She has COVID-19?! Never knew that, hope she’s better or will get better.
