I have no idea what this is supposed to mean.  I read your link, it never discusses anything remotely close to this.

Coronavirus: Broadway actor Nick Cordero wakes from coma.

Nick Cordero bound to be in hospital for months. Blood pressure still not under control and lung transplant is not viable as he is too weak. Seems he will actually spend the rest of his life in ICU.

Mikhail Ignatyev, head of Russia's Chuvash Republic until earlier this year, rona'd out at 58. He'd made some headlines a few months back due to a litany of bad behaviour that saw Putin lose faith in him, including dangling a firefighter's keys above their head and making him jump for them in public.

Well, one of the last things Ignatyev has done before getting the rona and dying was suing Putin.

Former Bangladesh cricket captain and member of parliament Mashrafe Mortaza tests positive, alone with fellow players Nazmul Islam and Nafees Iqbal. First two have been taking part actively in virus aid work, which might explain source (though Islam says he doesn't know how he got it, IMO it's pretty obvious if you're on the ground helping w/ aid work.)

 

Former Iraqi national football team player Ahmed Radhi, dead at 56:

Oh yeah, I watched the news about his tourney yesterday. That was doomed to fail.

Nick Kyrgios was on the money describing it as a boneheaded decision. Couldn't believe there was crowds there as if it was a normal tournament.

Haider Ail, Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan showed no symptoms before testing positive on Sunday.

 

They have now been joined by Fakhar Zaman, Imran Khan, Kashif Bhatti, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Rizwan and Wahab Riaz, along with team masseur Malang Ali, after further tests were carried out on Monday.

 

The tour is in August but they were due to fly out end of 28 June

 

Maybe in Hindsight the team masseur was a bad idea...

Matthew Corbett almost died of Corona and is still very weak. I'd imagine he has passed it on to Sooty given that it's hard to social distance with a hand up his arse.

iirc his early TV retirement was due to a longstanding health issue (MS? Parkinsons?) that would be problematic with covid, but I can't find what it was from a cursory Google glance.

Given how long Sooty has worked with him I’m surprised he has said nothing about this.......
