German-American model and television personality Heidi Klum got herself tested for the novel coronavirus after falling ill on the sets of America's Got Talent. While the show has stopped filming due to the outbreak, Klum has self-quarantined herself after showing signs of contracting the virus.
According to a report by The Sun, Heidi revealed that she feared her fever and runny nose were signs of COVID-19. She took to her Instagram and shared a video of separating from husband Tom Kaulitz, and wrote, "Like many of you, I also have been sick all week and, unfortunately, my husband who returned from his tour a couple of days ago is also feeling ill. To be safe, we are staying apart until we get the results of our Coronavirus tests (that we were finally able to get today) back. We don’t want to spread germs and risk others getting sicker... even each other! As much as I want to embrace him and kiss him, it is more important to do the right thing and not spread further. These are strange times... but in these moments, you remember what’s really important- the people you love and keeping them safe."
"Social distancing is what we all need to do right now to be responsible citizens of the world. We are all in this together and it is up to us to protect our loved ones, and our neighbours and our communities. Please listen to the officials and stay at home if you can and physically distance yourself from other people… especially if you are not feeling well. I see all the beautiful things people are doing for each other all over the globe and that gives me hope! Sending all of you love and positivity and healing vibes… together we can get through this but we need to be proactive so that we can all have a bright and healthy future", she added.
While Klum awaits her results, celebs who have tested positive for the coronavirus include Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, NBA stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
