  1. Why do we keep getting updates about celebrities or big names getting the virus? Are they supposed to be immune or something? What is the point?

    Do some people not care until they hear Tom Hanks or Greta get the virus?

  2. >Greta Thunberg says she and her father, Swedish actor Svante Thunberg, appear to have been infected by the coronavirus.

    >In an interview with New Scientist, the climate change campaigner said they had both experienced some symptoms of covid-19 after a recent train tour of Europe together. The pair were travelling before restrictions were imposed in several countries.

    >However, she stresses that neither of them have been tested for the virus, as Sweden is only testing people with the most severe symptoms and those in at-risk groups.

    >…

    >While neither have been tested because of Sweden’s approach, she said it would have been surprising if it was not covid-19. “So of course I’m not 100 per cent sure I have got it. But it would have been very strange if it would have been something else, because it just fits very [well]. Especially my father’s reaction, it’s exactly fitting with the symptoms.”

  3. I was going to be productive but I may as well watch this comment train go off the rails for a bit.

  4. She is doing the responsible thing. Isolate, recover at home.

    A good model for her young fans.

  5. Incoming vile comments from right-wing science deniers

  6. All the incels, illiterate adults and inbreds cheering her infection shows you how bad as a society we have become.

  7. Well yeah. But is it really needed to tell the whole world?

  8. So Greta hasn’t been in the news lately and decides to let us know that she might maybe possibly have it but doesn’t really know because she hasn’t been tested. Got it.

  9. Why do people hate a teenager who wants to better the world? Seems pretty weird to direct so much hate towards her

  10. How bizarre that this should happen at a time when she’s no longer the centre of attention.

    ​

    /s

  11. I’m glad she is hopefully going to be okay.

  12. this girl needs public attention

  13. she’s right hopefully this makes us fucking act about some of the broken things about society and proves that maybe we can handle the global warming

  14. Good to see a high profile individual setting the right example.

  15. There are threads on Reddit where the content you see when you sort by Controversial is virtually indistinguishable from sorting by New or Best.

    This is **not** one of those threads.

  16. Oof. The obsessed incels are going to have a field day.

  17. Not a fan of making a young girl the star of a movement, but right wing’s attack on her is just pathetic. Also the anti-Greta? Cringy as fuck.

  18. How is this newsworthy?

  19. If you want a laugh sort by controversial. Theres so many people jealous of a child in this thread I’m dying

  20. Funny how everyone is poking fun at her instead of saying “huh, she was right…”

  21. Regardless that I don’t agree with her on everything, I wish her the best. I can’t imagine dealing with coronavirus to begin with, let alone at such a young age.

  22. So many people in the comments afraid of a brave little girl

  23. LMFAO why the fuck should we care

    dumbass news stories on this dumbass website

    what matters: 1) what is the situation around the globe 2) what is and what is not being done on national levels 3) new things learned about this virus and its mutations

    she can tweet everyone to stay at home since she has influence but its just not a news item

    same goes for tom hanks and idris elba

    dumbass internet

  24. In a basement somewhere, an incel just pitched a tent

  25. Coronavirus has done more to battle climate change that Greta will ever do ../s

  26. It feels kind of disproportionate to me still. Media wasn’t counting the number of flu deaths one at a time like this and this had been a bad flu season. I understand this is deadlier, but a death is a death.

  27. Well, she was concerned about population control….

  28. Trump – “Greta’s in isolation? Gee that’s too bad.”

  29. Covid-19 did what she couldn’t…

  30. No one gives a shit. Stop reporting on these people.

  31. I disagree with her on a lot but I hope she gets better.

  32. The right is celebrating this and hoping she dies. Fucking deplorables

  33. Only issue is higher up officals and rich people are still traveling.

  34. Is autism a high risk comorbidity for the coronavirus?
