Why are celebrities and government officials getting the covid-19 test?

I am pretty pissed off that celebrities and members of Government are able to be tested for Covid-19 whilst the rest of us are kept guessing. It’s not on.

The Guardian: “So far, that seems to be a lesson of this virus: it shows us who and what gets protected, as the ship sinks. On the Titanic, it was women and children. With Covid-19, it’s the wealthy and powerful. Testing is just one part of the class story unfolding: everyday workers are being laid off en masse while the wealthiest industries begin batting their eyelashes at trillion-dollar bailouts.”

 

I came across a few interesting articles on this subject – it seems no celebrities are talking….
