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
1 Tom Hanks Thomas Jeffrey "Tom" Hanks (born July 9, 1956) 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, ...read more.

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.

Prime Minister Boris John was extremely ill with the Coronavirus. He could've died. I hope he doesn't suffer any long-term adverse effects from it because apparently, they are dreadful.

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

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.

I am actually a supporter of Donald Trump, so I don't feel out of place at all. He's still in the hospital, and ever since my father told me this, I have refused to take off my MAGA hat until he gets better.
Edit: Ironically, the MAGA hat came off yesterday, although I'm still on edge.
