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.
