CORONAVIRUS has the unnerving effect of affecting anyone regardless of race, nationality or status. 

It came for China, it came for Italy and now it's coming for the celebs. 

The hills of Hollywood aren't enough to protect some of the biggest names in showbiz from coronavirus.

Here are the celebrities who have been affected by COVID-19 so far.

1. Tom Hanks 

In classic chilled Tom Hanks fashion, he and his wife have been diagnosed with coronavirus in Australia and he wrote this very charming note about it. But if he survived the Vietnam War, being stranded on a desert island and an aborted moon landing - we think he'll be fine.

2. Carlos Santana 

Glasgow Times:

The legendary guitarist made a Soul Sacrifice by postponing a solo Glasgow show at the Hydro. Hopefully, he will Smooth (ft. Rob Thomas) things over with another show to make up for it when all this blows over.

3. Ellen DeGeneres

America's sweetheart made the decision on Thursday to host her chat show without a studio audience due to fears around large public gatherings. We're wondering if she'll give her guests the customary Ellen hug or the coronavirus elbow. 

4. Ted Cruz

If you believe failed presidential candidate and current senator for Texas, Ted Cruz has friends, one of them sent him a case of Corona to ease his quarantine blues. He put himself into self-isolation after coming into contact with someone infected with the virus at a political conference.

5. Simple Minds

Glasgow rockers Simple Minds were forced to split their shows in Denmark next week, due to coronavirus worries. They will now play two shows, one at 7pm and another at 10pm, on the advice of Danish health authorities.

6. The Who 

 The Who's Magic Bus will not be stopping at Glasgow's Hydro, or anywhere else in the UK or Ireland because they have suspended their tour until further notice. Famous for hoping they'll die before they get old, the band are now firmly in the demographic most at risk from the deadly virus, so their caution is understandable.
