*Tiffany Haddish recently contracted the coronavirus and spoke about it in a video uploaded to YouTube. In that same video, she spoke to Dr. Fauci regarding COVID-19’s effect on African Americans.

By the way, her timeline for experiencing the virus was around three months ago after two people she had been in contact with came down with it.

“I was working on a movie, and someone in the movie contracted coronavirus, right? I wasn’t in direct contact with them, but they sent all of us home and stopped the movie. Then they suggested that I go get tested. I went and got tested, got the results two days later, they said I did not have the coronavirus,” Haddish said in the vido. “Then someone else I know who was around the week before, they contracted the coronavirus and so I went and got tested again… Anyway, I get the test, I’m not feeling any symptoms or anything, it comes back two days later and they say I did have the virus.”

Interestingly, after feeling better, the actress got tested for the antibodies and was told she had them. But, when she got tested again, they were gone.

“I’ve been tested 12 times now,” Haddish said.

Fauci told Haddish that she did the right thing by getting tested often and quarantining in her household once she found out she was sick.

“The most important thing is that you have the societal responsibility not to be propagating the outbreak,” Fauci said. “To be part of the solution, not the problem.”

Fauci and Haddish also spoke about the disparity in COVID-19 infections within minority communities, and how the virus can take a greater toll on Black and Latinx people.

“Not only do they have a greater chance of getting infected, because they usually – not always, it’s dangerous to generalize – but people know they usually have jobs that don’t allow them to talk to a computer. They’re out on the front lines, doing the manual labor jobs that require interaction with people,” Fauci said. “Then when you look at the African American and Latinx population… they have a much greater likelihood of having the underlying conditions that means that when you do get infected, you likely would have a serious outcome.”

In order to prevent contracting the virus, Fauci said that physically distancing oneself from others not in their household is still the best way to go, and commented on its political implications.

“The thing that we’re facing that is unfortunate is the divisiveness in our society is making it almost a political thing,” Fauci said. “Trying to do public health things is the enemy of opening the country, that’s nonsense. We should use the public health measures as a vehicle and as a pathway to safely reopening the country.”

If you were watching E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet” Emmys pre-show today it was immediately obvious that the hosting team was not Giuliana Rancic and Vivica A. Fox.

So why were Brad Goreski and Nina Parker greeting folks, you’re no doubt asking? The answer is COVID-19.

In a video shared by E!, a few minutes into the show, Rancic  explained the situation.

“Hey, everyone. As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately this year is just so different,” Rancic shared with fans. “As part of E! and NBCUniversal’s very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19. Now as much as I didn’t want to hear that, I’m very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. So for that, I’m thankful.”

Rancic continued, “As far as my health, I’m doing well. My husband Bill and our son [Duke] also did test positive, but we’re all doing well and taking care each other so I’m going to get back to doing that. But I just want to say I’m wishing you all the best and please protect yourselves and protect those around you. Take good care and I’ll see you on the next red carpet.”

As far as Vivica A. Fox is concerned, E!’s co-host Brad Goreski read a statement from the actress saying that she had to miss the broadcast because she was quarantining at home out of “an abundance of caution after testing positive for COVID-19, too.

According to sources, the hosts’ positive test result came within the past 24 hours, triggering last-minute changes in the network’s plans. Along with Ryan Seacrest, Rancic has been the face of E!’s red carpet coverage for the past two decades.

All we can say is WOW. Get well, ladies.
