Couple Married for 53 Years Hold Hands as They Die of Coronavirus on the Same Day
A couple who were married for more than half a century reportedly succumbed to coronavirus complications on the same day in Texas.
According to CNN, Betty and Curtis Tarpley, 80 and 79, died within an hour of each other on June 18 and held hands during their final minutes together.
The couple's son, Tim Tarpley, told the network that Betty showed symptoms of the deadly disease just before she was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth on June 9. Curtis was admitted to the same hospital just two days later.
Tarpley said Betty phoned both him and his sister, telling them she was at peace with dying as her condition continued to decline.
"I just screamed, 'No!' I was like, 'I've got too much, too many other things to do in this life that I want to show you, and I'm not ready,'" he recalled to CNN.

'It's taking us out': Oprah Winfrey warns coronavirus is 'ravaging' the black community and reveals concern for her own health after battling pneumonia six months ago
Oprah Winfrey has warned African Americans to take the coronavirus outbreak seriously because it is 'ravaging our community' and 'taking us out'.
The TV mogul said the coronavirus outbreak continued to have a devastating impact on black communities across the United States but that people weren't getting the message about the risk of asymptomatic carriers.
Speaking to CBS This Morning on Tuesday, Winfrey said it was important for black people to understand that pre-existing conditions including diabetes and asthma put them at greater risk if they contracted the virus.
She also voiced concerns for her own health, saying she was staying indoors because she suffered from pneumonia last year and that her 'lungs never really fully cleared'.

Matthew Broderick's sister said she received preferential treatment while battling coronavirus
The sister of actor Matthew Broderick said she received preferential treatment at a California hospital while battling the coronavirus.
Janet Broderick, a pastor at All Saints Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, was hospitalized last month after falling ill upon returning from a conference in Kentucky. She has since recovered and is back home.
Broderick told New York Magazine that her general practitioner didn't know about her famous familial connection and "didn't care very much." But that changed when the pastor went to an emergency room at a Beverly Hills hospital.
"As soon as I got ahold of the guy at the hospital who knew who Matthew was, I was given the name of the head of the emergency room," she said. "Well, trust me, the folks I've spent my lifetime working with in Jersey City would never have been given the name of the head of the emergency room. If they were, it would have been disregarded."
"I think I'm absolute living proof that this system is completely corrupt," she told the outlet.

Sebastian Stan Unloaded On ‘Idiots’ Crowding The Beaches In Florida During A Pandemic
“There was a meme going around which really kind of put me in my place which was like ‘Your grandparents went to war, and you’re being asked to sit on a couch.’ Like, get the fuck with it,” Stan said. “I talked to a couple friends who are in the workforce like cops out there sleeping in their garages, working 20 hours a day; nurses coming home and not being able to hold their children because they’re afraid they’re going to contaminate their families, then going back to work. You hear that stuff and it blows my mind because it makes me feel like I have such privilege to be able to sit around here while these people are beating themselves.”
“But what makes me insane is seeing that the beaches in fucking Miami are still flooded with these fucking idiots...
‘Walking Dead’ actor Daniel Newman ‘disgusted’ by $9K coronavirus test bill
Even celebrities can’t get their coronavirus test results in the United States — just the bill.
After having a colleague test positive for COVID-19 and developing minor symptoms himself, “The Walking Dead” actor Daniel Newman sought to be tested in Georgia. He called around and discovered his own doctor and many urgent-care clinics didn’t even have the tests available. When he finally found a large hospital in Atlanta that did have them, it was only after Newman was recognized for his role on the AMC horror TV series that he was given one.
“Preferential treatment is disgusting,” Newman, 38, tells CNN of being among the few to receive a test for the novel coronavirus. But apparently, even fame isn’t enough to get the results of the test — only an invoice to the tune of $9,116.

Rudy Gobert says coronavirus made him lose sense of smell
It took Rudy Gobert's positive test for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, to spark much of the action we've seen take place across the sports world.
The NBA suspended its season, which was followed by the NHL, MLS and MLB doing the same. The NCAA canceled March Madness altogether.
Yet, Gobert faced plenty of criticism for how he carried himself in the days leading up to his diagnosis. He jokingly touched recorders and phones after a press conference to make light of the coronavirus outbreak and tested positive two days later – something he apologized for in his first health update.
Now that Gobert is nearing the two-week mark since he tested positive for the coronavirus, he took to Twitter to offer another update. And he's experiencing a side effect that hasn't been widely associated with COVID-19.
Doctors Indicate Loss of Smell Could Be a Coronavirus Symptom

"It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from, this pandemic will affect us all. And for the world's most vulnerable, the worst may be yet to come."
Wilson Chandler neighbor defends building manager after Twitter tirade
Wilson Chandler’s neighbors are rushing to the defense of his condo building’s manager after the Nets star bashed her in a furious tweet.
A day after four of his teammates tested positive for the coronavirus, a staffer at his One Brooklyn Bridge Park building allegedly called Chandler in his apartment. He later tweeted, “Building manager called me saying ‘Oh, I seen Nets players had the virus. We would like to know your status. And if you could possibly stay out of the lobby etc. We can’t afford to lose our staff.’”
But one condo owner in the building — which is also reportedly home to Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, and formerly housed then-Nets, now-Bulls star Thaddeus Young — said of the staffer, “She is always professional and courteous and only wants to protect everybody who lives in our building.”
Police Launch Investigation Into Video of Teenagers Coughing on Produce at Grocery Store
Following reports of teenagers coughing on produce at a local grocery store for a video, one Virginia police department has launched an investigation. On Thursday, Purcellville PD released a statement to say it had learned the incident took place at an undisclosed store on Wednesday. Employees at the store removed the items immediately, and now officials have asked parents to monitor their children's activities and social media accounts in order to "avoid the increase of any further such incidents."
"We have learned that this appears to be a disturbing trend on social media across the country, and we ask for help from parents to discourage this behavior immediately," Purcellville police wrote in a Facebook post. "Please talk with your children and explain to them why such behavior is wrong, especially given the current situation regarding the spread of Coronavirus."

Coronavirus patient on hellish ordeal: ‘I was screaming for mercy and praying to God’
It started out as a tickle in his throat before bed, but by the next morning, it felt like the worst flu ever.
And by the time Kevin Harris was admitted to a hospital in Ohio five days later, he thought he was suffocating to death.
The doctors at St. Joseph Hospital in Warren were certain Harris, 55, had pneumonia — but three days later, they had the real diagnosis: coronavirus.
One of the doctors had tears in his eyes when Harris asked if he would live. Another doctor just shrugged and mumbled, “I don’t know.”
“They told me they didn’t have a cure,” Harris told the Post from his hospital room, where he was still hooked up to oxygen Tuesday night. “I just wanted them to tell me if I’m going to live or die.”

A Louisiana pastor defies a state order and holds a church service with hundreds of people
On Tuesday night, just before the police arrived, Pastor Tony Spell stood in the pulpit of his Louisiana church and delivered a message to hundreds of worshipers before him and fellow believers around the world.
"I just want to encourage the religious world tonight, Amen!," Spell said in a sing-song voice, building to the crest of his sermon.
"Keep going to church! Keep on worshiping God! ... The church is a hospital for the sick! It's a place of healing for the brokenhearted!"
In holding services for so many followers at his Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, Spell defied an emergency order by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards banning public or private gatherings with more than 50 people to stop the spread of Covid-19.
"I feel the Covid-19 scare is politically motivated," Spell told CNN. He estimated his church hosted about 300 people for Tuesday's service.
