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

Tom Hanks Thomas Jeffrey "Tom" Hanks is an American actor and filmmaker. He is known for his roles in Splash, Big, Turner & Hooch, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, You've Got Mail, The Green Mile, the Toy Story Franchise, Cast Away, The Da Vinci Code, Captain Phillips, and Saving Mr. more.

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.

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 & Rita have been well for a while now.
I read that Rita Wilson had the Coronavirus when she entered Australia.

He's NOT the most famous person who was infected by the Coronavirus.

Rita Wilson

I really like rita Wilson I am happy she is ok

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.

On one hand, I never took him very seriously, on the other hand he's leading a nation with people who I DO take seriously, and it's never good news when one is diagnosed with coronavirus

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

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.

Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association. He has played for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, and the Nets. He was MVP of the 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals.

Mitchell's positive test was not known until early Thursday, the first full day of the NBA's hiatus.

Ew! stop addimg adding monkeys to this list! ~Piplup

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

Prince Charles is definitely the most famous person to contract the coronavirus. HE'S BEEN FAMOUS SINCE BIRTH!

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.

No one DESERVES to have the Coronavirus, no matter what they've done.

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.
