Out of 419 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Canada, one is the wife of the prime minister. Likewise the wife of the Spanish prime minister has the disease.
Of 377 cases in Australia, 2 are Tom Hanks and his wife.
The probability this happening by random chance is miniscule. The risks of testing positive for the disease must be 1000s of times higher for them than for the average person.
Is this because the rich and famous have easier access to testing?
Or does the lifestyle of travel and entertaining many people from different places mean they are more prone to getting the disease?
Many media reports were originally dismissive of the risks and took that position that travel bans or “social distancing” were unnecessary and suggested they were racist and/or xenophobic. Now the media reports are bordering on hysteria about the government not doing enough to stop the disease.
Do you think that the change is because journalists now personally know people who are infected and may be worried about contracting the disease themselves?
