Pro-wrestler turned Hollywood actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson said in a video message posted on social media on September 2, that he, his wife and their two young children tested positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks but that they all have recovered and are healthy. Johnson said in the Instagram post that they caught the virus about 2-1/2 weeks ago from "very close family friends" whom he said had no idea how they had become infected. "I can tell you this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me personally," he said in the video. The actor said his family, like their friends who caught the virus first, had been "incredibly disciplined" about adhering to safety measures to avoid the virus. "But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We are on the other end of it," he said. "We are no longer contagious, and we are, thank God, we are healthy."

The actor urged people to wear face masks to limit the spread of coronavirus.

"It baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, will take this idea of wearing masks and make it a political agenda," he said. "It is a fact and it's the right thing to do, and it is the responsible thing to do." REUTERS/Benoit Tessier

World-record sprinter and eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt tested positive for the coronavirus and was self-isolating at his home in Jamaica on August 24 after celebrating his 34th birthday with a big bash mask-free a week earlier.

Flavio Briatore, one of Italy's most flamboyant businessmen who lambasted restrictions aimed at curbing the COVID-19 epidemic, was hospitalized on August 25 after testing positive, his staff said. Briatore, 70, became famous as a Formula 1 team manager in the 1990s and 2000s, and mentored world champion drivers Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso. Briatore owns the Billionaire nightclub on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia and a week earlier fiercely condemned a local mayor who had imposed limits on discos in an effort to stamp out a jump in the number of new coronavirus cases. "It breaks my heart to see an economy slaughtered by people who have done sod all," Briatore said on a video posted on Instagram. His club is now seen as a coronavirus hotspot with more than 60 staff members and guests testing positive in recent days.

Announcing the infection on July 27, the White House said in a statement there was no risk of exposure to Trump or Vice President Mike Pence. The announcement caught some White House staff off guard, as there had not been an internal memo about it, one source said. Because of the regular testing regimen, White House officials do not reliably wear masks while working in the West Wing. An administration official said O'Brien had not had contact with the president in several days. O'Brien, who took over as national security adviser from John Bolton last September, had traveled to Paris in mid-July to represent the United States at Bastille Day ceremonies.

Singer Pink said April 3 she had tested positive for COVID-19, two weeks earlier and has since recovered. "Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive," she wrote in an Instagram post. "My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative," Pink said in the post, alongside a picture of her with her son. She also called for testing to be made free and more available, saying it was an "absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible."
