Vint Cerf Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Internet pioneer and vice president of research at Google, Vint Cerf, said in a tweet this morning that he has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). He wrote, "I tested positive for COVID-19 and am recovering," and recommended people to watch an HBO segment from comedian John Oliver about preventative steps that the US needs to take. Cerf is 76 years old — an age group that has a high risk of mortality. However, he is in great care, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

At least he now has his own antibodies and at some point in time after recovery is complete he can help others.
