When it comes to coronavirus cases in celebrities, singer Kanika Kapoor was the latest to test positive for the virus and is being treated for it. Meanwhile, Hollywood celebrities like Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Game of Thrones actors Indira Varma and Kristofer Hivju, Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko were a few others who also tested positive for Covid-19.

Now, the latest Hollywood celebrity to join that list is American broadway actor and singer, Aaron Tveit. Aaron is popularly known for his performances in Grease: Live, Moulin Rouge! on Broadway and for his stint as Tripp Van Der Bilt on Gossip Girl. He took to his Instagram at the beginning of the week to give everyone an update on how he is doing since he was tested.

He says he has been under quarantine ever since he was diagnosed. He also informs that though his symptoms were mild, he still took all the necessary precautions because as he says, “this can happen to anybody“.

Hey everyone. I just wanted to update you all that I’ve found out that I’ve tested positive for Covid-19. I’ve been in quarantine since Broadway shows shut down on Thursday, March 12th, and I’m feeling much better. I consider myself extremely lucky that my symptoms have been very mild – cold like with no fever – as so many are experiencing much more serious symptoms, because this is a very dangerous virus. One thing I have been experiencing is the loss of taste and smell, which I think is a big sign for people who are otherwise asymptotic. I was tested last Monday, and just found out the results, however, I have been taking this situation extremely seriously, even before I was tested. I want everyone to realize that this can affect anyone. And even if you aren’t feeling sick or showing drastic symptoms – please take heed, stay safe, stay healthy and I hope to see everyone at the theater again soon. And I wanted to post this with a picture of Miles because, they’re loving all this extra time at home with their Humans!

We wish Aaron a speedy recovery and wish to see him at the theatres soon enough.
