It’s the latest high-profile case in the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
In an email to the Harvard community, Larry Bacow, Harvard’s president, says he and his wife, Adele, have both tested positive for COVID-19. On Sunday, they experienced their first symptoms, which included fevers, chills, and muscle aches. On Monday they were tested, and on Tuesday they received the results of the test. They’re among a growing number of high-profile people who have tested positive for the illness in recent days, including Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and actor Idris Elba.
