After it first emerged in the Wuhan, Hubei, province in China in 2019, the novel coronavirus has made its way around the world and the World Health Organization has reported that more than 75,532,000 people have contracted coronavirus so far — including some of your favorite celebrities.
Former Disney Channel star Kevin Quinn is the latest celeb to reveal his experience with COVID-19.
“Well, the day has finally come. Religious hand washing, sanitizing, mask wearing…yet I still tested positive for COVID this morning. Almost made it the entire year!” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m doing alright so far, but my breathing is shallow, my body aches, I have a fever, yada yada … Started the quarantine process. Will keep y’all posted as things progress.”
Since the disease started to spread, medical professionals have called for “social distancing” to prevent further spreading of the illness, which is defined as “trying to keep yourself away from other people, especially large crowds.” Because of this many events, concerts, award shows, conventions and festivals have been canceled, including all Broadway plays and sports games. Not to mention that for the first time since September 11, 2001, every Disney theme park and cruise line worldwide was shut down due to the disease. People are urged to stay indoors, avoid public places and isolate themselves during this time. The virus has resulted in more than 1,673,000 deaths and has infected people in 220 countries. 53,028,000 people have recovered.
