Top politicians, celebrities and sportspeople have been infected as governments take strict measures to curb the virus. The coronavirus pandemic has spread to at least 170 countries and territories, with the worldwide death toll from the virus surpassing the 18,000 mark on March 25. Among the more than 420,000 cases recorded globally are government officials, celebrities and sports personalities as authorities around the world grapple to contain the spread of the virus. High-profile events including the annual Met Gala – often referred to as fashion’s biggest night out – will not take place. The gala has been postponed indefinitely from its scheduled first Monday of May, according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in the United States.
