These are all the celebs who have tested positive for coronavirus
And plenty have gone into self-isolation
Celebrities, they’re just like us. Equally terrified and completely susceptible to coronavirus. Basically no one is safe.
The majority of celebrities are merely taking to Instagram to show off their masks when travelling first class and don’t actually have the virus.
But a few celebs have tested positive for the virus, including Tom Hanks!! A small percentage of celebs have also put themselves into isolation for fear of contracting the disease.
Here are all the celebrities who have tested positive for coronavirus:
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita confirmed they had tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday 12th March. Tom shared the news with everyone via Instagram where he posted a statement explaining they are in Australia and had both been unwell. He said they were tested for the virus and have both contracted it. Tom also said they will be in isolation and update everyone on their progress.
He said: “Hello, folks. @ritawilson and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.
“Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?
“We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!”
Tom and Rita also posted a selfie and told everyone to listen to experts.
Sophie Grégoire Trudeau – The wife of Justin Trudeau
The Canadian Prime Minister’s wife Sophie, has tested positive for coronavirus. Sophie reported symptoms on Wednesday 11th March after attending a speaking event in the UK and was confirmed to have the virus on Thursday 12th March.
Both Sophie and her husband are now in isolation. In a statement she said even though she is feeling uncomfortable, she will soon be back on her feet and said her experience will not be as serious as others in Canada.
She said: “Although I’m experiencing uncomfortable symptoms from the virus, I will be back on my feet soon.
“Being in quarantine at home is nothing compared to other Canadian families who might be going through this and for those facing more serious health concerns.”

I feel so grateful for the trust you’ve put in the Liberal team and also so full of hope for what’s ahead. There’s lots more work to do to keep moving our country forward, and I know we’ll get there together. From the bottom of my heart – thank you, Canada! ❤️ Je ne peux pas vous dire à quel point j’apprécie la confiance dont vous avez témoigné à l’égard de notre grande famille libérale.
