Betty White Confirms She ‘Is Fine’ Amid Coronavirus Concerns

March 12, 2020

Thank you for being a friend, but Rose Nyland is doing just great.

A rep for Betty White was forced to comment on the television icon’s health after people began inquiring about the "Golden Girls" star amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Worry began to grow on social media about the 98-year-old after Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson confirmed on Wednesday they had both tested positive for coronavirus.

But there’s no reason to be alarmed, a rep for White told the “Today” show, “Betty is fine.”

The good news will calm the fears of White’s fanbase, who were very vocal about making sure she was ok.

“Just found out Tom Hanks has the Coronavirus, SOMEONE GO GET BETTY WHITE!!!!!,” a concerned Twitter user wrote.

“@ coronavirus so help me god if you do anything to Betty White we’re gonna have some problems,” added another.

Concern arose as the CDC has warned older adults are most vulnerable in contracting coronavirus.

Hanks and Wilson, who are both 63, announced they had tested positive for COVID-19 while in Australia on Wednesday. Their son, Chet Atkins, later disclosed that that his parents don’t seem too worried, but “they’re going through the necessary health precautions."

On Thursday, it was revealed Matthew Broderick's sister, Janet Broderick, was in an intensive care unit but was improving after testing positive for coronavirus.
