While the coronavirus affects the whole world, politicians, athletes and famous names also suffer from the epidemic. So, why are so many famous names coronavirus test positive? The evolutionary biologist Carl Bergstrom gave the answer to this question.
The coronavirus spread to 459 thousand people worldwide, causing more than 20 thousand people to die. One of the remarkable things about the virus was that it smeared politicians, athletes and famous names. In our country, it was announced that the coronavirus test was positive for the players and administrative officers of Fenerbahçe’s basketball and football team, manager Abdürrahim Albayrak in Galatasaray and coach Fatih Terim.
The evolutionary and theoretical biologist Carl Bergstrom of the University of Washington said that this is because politicians and celebrities are more connected than most of us.
Why is coronavirus infecting celebrities?
Bergstrom explained this situation as follows: “They are highly connected points in ‘language network theory’. They travel more and interact more with one more person. Moreover, these interactions take place with large circles of people. According to the disease network models, infection occurs early in high-connected points and reaches its peak. ”
In fact, getting famous and more prominent names to coronavirus clearly shows how serious the disease is. When the coronavirus test was positive, Rudy Gobert was joking at a press conference before the test was positive, by putting his hand on the microphones.
Gobert, after the coronavirus test is positive, “Don’t forget to wash your hands constantly, avoid touching your face with your hand and avoid unnecessary interactions with people. I wish I would take this situation more seriously, I hope everyone takes it seriously because we can do it together. ”
Some famous names that have positive coronavirus tests worldwide are as follows; Tom Hanks and Rita Hanks, Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre Elba, Donovan Mitchell, Kevin Durant, Prince Charles, Prince of Monaco 2 Albert, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau (wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau), Iran’s Vice President Masume Ebtekar.
