Fans are worried that Tom Holland may have caught the coronavirus after he said he was feeling sick during a recent Instagram Live. But according to the Spider-Man star, he doesn’t think he has the deadly disease.
“I’m feeling very ill today, but I don’t think I have got the coronavirus,” he said. “But I’m taking extra precautions. I’m self-isolating inside.”
For those who missed it, World Health Organization has reported that more than 380,000 people have contracted illness so far in more than 177 countries, resulting in 17,000 deaths. Medical professionals have called for “social distancing” to prevent further spreading of the virus, 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. People are urged to stay indoors and isolate themselves during this time.
Some celebrities have already tested positive for the coronavirus, including Charlotte Lawrence, Liz Mace (from the popular girl group Megan & Liz), Andrew Watt (who fans may recognize as Camila Cabello and Post Malone‘s producer), Frozen 2 actress Rachel Matthews, influencer Arielle Charnas and Andy Cohen are just a few of the stars who have unfortunately caught the disease.
Loren Gray revealed via Twitter that her young cousin was sick with the coronavirus.
“Just a reminder that this is not a joke. Think about your loved ones. Remember that even if you are young, you are at huge risk not just of contracting the virus but spreading it to those you care about. Got a call today that my cousin came down with a terrible illness, to which they narrowed down to be coronavirus,” she wrote. “My family said it’s the worst thing they’ve ever seen, and they’re surprised she’s even recovering. They couldn’t go into the room to help her. Only leave food outside the door and pray. This can happen to ANYONE. Be safe. Please. STAY AT HOME.”

August Maturo took to Instagram, and told his fans that he was worried that his younger brother, Ocean, may have caught the illness, but that his family can’t access a test to find out if he’s come down with the disease or not.
“My little brother Ocean is sick. He tested negative for Influenza A and B, so we asked for a Coronavirus test. GUESS WHAT? There are no tests, and it’s almost impossible to get one,” the Girl Meets World actor wrote. “We live in Ventura County with almost 1,000,000 people here and only 77 people TOTAL have been tested. THIS MAKES ZERO SENSE! I’m not very worried about Ocean because he’s young and strong, but I’m worried about my 80 year old grandmother who lives with us! And my family members with asthma! THIS IS THE USA — WHY ARE THERE NO TESTS FOR US? Please tag California governor @gavinnewsom and your local reps and demand access to tests!”
