Top 10 Famous People Infected by the COVID-19 Virus (Coronavirus)

With over 770 million infections and 7 million deaths, COVID-19 has affected every nation in the world. 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.
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

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 contracted it before entering Australia. An Australian TV celebrity caught the virus from her.

He and his wife were supposedly diagnosed on a film set in Australia. They were among the first celebrities to go public with their infection.

2 Rita Wilson
3 Boris Johnson Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is an English politician, popular historian, and journalist who has served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2019 to 2022 and Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip since 2015. Johnson previously served as the MP for Henley from 2001 until 2008,... read more

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was extremely ill with the Coronavirus. He could have 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 and could have died. Rita Wilson had coronavirus when she entered Australia, and neither she nor Tom Hanks had it seriously.

Loads of people on this list just had it mildly. BoJo actually had to go into intensive care. The government tried to make it sound like it was just a precaution, but when you give people the news that their PM could 'wave today,' it makes it sound a little more serious.

4 Idris Elba Idrissa Akuna "Idris" Elba OBE is an English actor, producer, musician and DJ known for playing drug trafficker Stringer Bell on the HBO series The Wire, DCI John Luther on the BBC One series Luther and Nelson Mandela in the biographical film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
5 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.

Apparently, the Brooklyn Nets had four players test positive, including KD. I haven't heard anything about his condition or anyone else's, but this is unfortunate. The Nets haven't played since they beat the LA Lakers at the Staples Center.

The famous Brooklyn Nets player has tested positive for the coronavirus.

6 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Donald J. Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968... read more

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.

I hate Trump, but dang, I hope he gets better though.

I obviously hate Trump, but I wish him the best of luck.

7 Donovan Mitchell

Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the virus. Mitchell's positive test was not known until early Thursday, the first full day of the NBA's hiatus.

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 expressing your opinion. I just feel like I had to get a point across.

I'd say "Good riddance," but really, no one should get COVID, not even Hitler himself deserves it.
