    Meanwhile my commoner son and daughter can’t get tested but every rich celebrity who was on an airplane has.

    Word is Idris Elba got a test despite showing no symptoms, while frontline health workers can't. The Prime Minister of Canada didn't even get tested with no symptoms, despite being quarantined with his wife who already tested positive.

    And that's why I don't care, and wouldn't care if every celebrity came down with it. A celebrity is no more important or worth more than any other person in my life. My sister coming down with it would mean more to me, and is no less deserving of care or recognition than any celebrity. And I'm sure that you feel the same way.

    The scarcity of test in the United States seems to be artificial. We recorded our first case of COVID-19 around the same time South Korea did

    It's MC, we talk about movies, celebrities make our movies.
    That's really as deep as it goes for me.

    If I were a gamer, and game developers were getting it, I'd be making that list in Press Start.
    Baba can take that one if he wants.

    From what I read he took the test because he was near people who tested positive for it.

    Which still isn't enough for a regular person with no symptoms to receive a test. :shrug:

    They asked me if my daughter had been on a cruise ship or to China in the last 30 days. Should have said yes...

    In fairness, the Corona virus was told that getting with Harvey would be good for its career.

    Also, we should make note of / track the celebrities that RECOVER from the disease as well, I think. I'd love to see some good with the bad, TBH.

    The comments in that Yahoo article are pretty telling. Lots of idiotic Americans complaining that the celebrities "went to the front of the line" for testing.

    Fact: Tom and his wife were in Australia at the time. Idris and his wife live in the UK.

    Neither country has the testing issues that the USA has.

    I saw screenshots of a Twitter of someone who was sick for days and had been sent home twice before driving himself to the hospital and collapsing in the parking lot. He's recovering but many will not be so lucky.
