INSTAGRAM: Daniel Newman, a The Walking Dead actor who has been a voice of reason in the COVID-19 scare, has shared his own experience with what may be the virus, and — in stark contrast to the lies Trump is peddling — his inability to get tested:
Finally I found one emergency room that told me my symptoms match and to come in immediately. I did all the tests and they told me because I have “mild symptoms“ the government won’t allow them to process my tests! They don’t have enough they’re not prepared, even though all my symptoms match. They’re only allowed to process “severe symptoms, elderly, or people recently in Italy and China”. It cost me $9,116!! and they didn’t even give me results.
JOE.MY.GOD.: The FDA has approved a rapid COVID-19 test. It will be used in the field at hospitals and at testing facilities, and only takes 45 minutes to deliver results.

TWITTER: Commissioner Omari Hardy of Lake Worth, Florida, behaved heroically in a meeting regarding closure of beaches and — kid you not — whether or not to deny service to people who were having trouble paying for utilities due to COVID-19. Watch:

NYDN: Polish legend Witold Sadowy, an actor since 1945, used a TV interview celebrating his 100th birthday to come out as gay:
For me, the most important thing is the survival of the truth. “I am proud that I am an honest man. I didn’t get married, and I didn’t have children, something I really regret, but I was born different. I’m gay. Now I have said everything, as in confession.
His confession is especially poignant these days, as a third of his homeland has been declared an LGBT-free zone due to discriminatory laws and prevailing homophobia.
