Tormund Tests Positive To COVID-19
Tormund Tests Positive: Kristofer Hivju who is known for his role in the popular HBO Series, Game Of Thrones as Tormund Giantsbane took to his Instagram page to announce that he tested positive to the rampaging Coronavirus.
The Norwegian Actor further implored fans and sundry to stay safe and keep their distance from people, adding that he was now isolating himself alongside his family. He said he only had a mild cold symptom and nothing else.
Kristofer Havju is set to appear in the upcoming second season of Netflix‘s video game-inspired series, The Witcher, in 2021, however, the streaming giant has supposedly put the production of the series on hold amid the concerns surrounding the rapidly-spreading virus.
He isn’t the only celebrity who has come out to declare his health status concerning the coronavirus, last week, Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita were confirmed as carriers of the virus. Idris Elba also made his status public several days ago, now Hivju.
The risk around this ever growing virus is extremely high and people have been warned against going to public places, touching themselves or their faces and also keeping a high sanitary profile.
Returning travellers are advised to isolate themselves for at least 14 days and get tested. Many Countries have placed the travel ban, prohibiting both incoming and outgoing personnel and goods as the virus can also be spread through commodities.
The virus has symptoms similar to having a cold or a flu like: Cough, difficulty breathing and fever. For some others, the symptoms can be worse, depending the already existing health status of the person.
People now work and school from home because of the outbreak and are advised to cover their mouth when coughing, wash their hands regularly and avoid touching their faces.
Hopefully, a cure comes real soon but till then, the best we can do is be careful.
