Oscar-winning Tom Hanks may be the first celebrity in the world to open up about being infected with the new crown virus,media reported. He and his wife, Rita Wilson, have since recovered and donated their blood to researchers in case they can help their work on the new coronavirus vaccine.
Now, for the famous actor, things are starting to get back to normal — for example, he hosted a special on “Saturday Night Live” after he recovered. In addition, his apple TV plus movie Greyhound will debut on streaming on July 10. Meanwhile, as part of a media campaign to promote the new film, Hanks has also made some comments about the current epidemic of coronavirus — sending a simple message to those who resist wearing masks.
“There are only three things we can do to get to tomorrow. Hanks told People magazine. “Wear a mask, keep your social distance, and wash your hands.” These things are so simple and so easy. “
“If someone can’t practice these three basic things on themselves — I just think you’re going to be ashamed. Don’t be a nasty person and do your part. This is very basic. If you’re driving, you don’t drive too fast, you have to use the turnlight to avoid hitting pedestrians. “
According to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, there were more than 2.68 million new confirmed cases and more than 128,000 deaths in the United States as of the time it was released.
Wearing a mask and keeping a social distance are now considered so critical in the fight against the coronavirus that Goldman’s chief economist wrote in a note to clients this week that he believes national mask ingestions could help save the U.S. economy.
“We found that wearing masks was associated with a marked improvement in the new crown outbreak,” wrote Jan Hatzius, chief economist at Goldman Sachs. “Our baseline estimate is that the law that forces the wearing of a mask can increase the proportion of people wearing a mask by 15 percentage points and reduce the daily growth rate of confirmed cases by 1.0 to 0.6 percentage points. “
Hatzius’s note goes on to say: “These calculations mean that the decree that forces the wearing of masks is likely to replace the blockade or suffer a loss of 5% of GDP.” “
