Actor-comedian D.L. Hughley, who collapsed in the middle of his set at a Nashville comedy club, has announced that he tested positive for the coronavirus.

The 57-year-old stunned patrons and employees when he lost consciousness while performing at the Zanies comedy nightclub on Friday night.

On Saturday, Hughley posted a video on Twitter in which he told his fans that he was treated for exhaustion and dehydration afterward.

“I also tested positive for COVID-19, which blew me away,” he says in the clip. “I was what they call asymptomatic. I didn’t have any symptoms, the classic symptoms.”

Trump made some comments about her during his rally last night.

quote:
Trump called Omar a "hate-filled America-bashing socialist" whose goal is to make America "just like the country from which she came, Somalia. No government, no police, no safety, no nothing."

Omar, a representative from Minnesota, fled Somalia as a refugee and has been a citizen since she was 17. Her father died from COVID-19 a few days ago.


The president, ever the class act.

Wouldn't collapsing be a symptom?

I think we (the media? everyone?) need to change how we talk about this and start saying pre-symptomatic. I don't think all the talk about being asymptomatic is helpful, because it's contributing to this notion that "most" people don't get seriously ill, which in turn leads to a lot of people not being sufficiently afraid of this illness.

These idiots who keep talking about "I don't want to live in fear." Well, yeah, so you are instrad going to get sick and die in ignorance. Bang Head

I thought he was referring to how he felt prior to the collapse and that he didn't have the other COVID symptoms like loss of taste/smell, cough, muscle aches....

I'm sure you're right WTG, but I don't think it's helpful to continue calling that "asymptomatic." Obviously, it's only in hindsight that it becomes clear that it was "pre-symptomatic," but in terms of conveying the dangers etc., there seems to be a clear need for changing the way these things are described. And by medical personnel of course, the gentleman who collapsed is probably just repeating what he's hearing other people describe, perhaps even his doctors.

And there's probably an element of "please don't blame me, I didn't have any reason to know or realize I was getting sick," because no one wants to be thought of as irresponsible or needlessly putting others at risk....

I am just down here watching people in my town act as if there's no such thing as covid, and the city just this morning released its findings about covid levels detected in wastewater pointing to a very high number of infections here....

It's so, so frustrating. And scary.

Novak Djokovic, the world's No. 1-ranked men's tennis player, has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Serbian tennis star released a statement on his diagnosis, saying that he and his wife have both contracted the virus after he organized a series of exhibition matches in southeastern Europe.

The events, called the Adria Tour, have been widely criticized for not maintaining significant social distancing protocols.

The stands were packed with fans, as The Associated Press noted. Tennis.com reported that players were seen mingling without proper social distancing, playing in basketball and soccer games, and visiting a nightclub.

Djokovic was photographed in close contact with tennis player Grigor Dimitrov, who has also tested positive for the virus.

"We organized the tournament at the moment when the virus has weakened, believing that the conditions for hosting the Tour had been met," Djokovic said in his statement. "Unfortunately, the virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with."

President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien has tested positive for Covid-19, according to people familiar with his situation.

O’Brien has been out of the office since late last week, one of the people said.

O’Brien came down with the coronavirus after a family event and has been isolating at home while still running the National Security Council, doing most of his work by phone, according to one of the people.

All the people asked not to be named to discuss information that is not yet public.


Some co-workers found out from news reports rather than being notified....

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday before he was supposed to greet President Donald Trump.

DeWine took a COVID-19 test as part of the protocol to meet Trump on the tarmac at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland. Trump planned to tour the Whirlpool plant in Clyde, Ohio, before attending a private fundraiser in Bratenahl.

Turns out DeWine tested negative when he had additional, more sensitive testing done.

Some people will do anything to keep from meeting with Himself....

This is happening pretty much everywhere, as far as I can tell.

I see it in the news over and over again, all over the country.

I see people who seem blissfully unaware of the danger where I live every day.
