Chris Rock lands on the long list of celebrities who had to deal with the COVID-19 infection. After names like Antonio Banderas, Tom Hanks, Idris Elba, Charlotte Lawrence, Rachel Matthews, and many others, the American comedian Chris Rock is also infected with the coronavirus.
Chris Rock himself revealed the news of the infection with COVID on his Twitter account:
Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated.

Of course, judging by his words, it could mean that the coronavirus is already giving the famous comedian a tough time. However, Chris Rock didn’t comment on his condition.
Chris Rock is vaccinated for COVID
As CNN writes, the famous American comedian revealed back in May that he has been vaccinated for COVID with the jab developed by Johnson & Johnson. He also joked that he used his celebrity status to get it, as also quoted by CNN:
I used my celebrity, Jimmy,
I didn’t care. I was like, ‘Hey, step aside Betty White, step aside old people, Judge Judy.’
At the same time, since Chris Rock is vaccinated for the coronavirus, the chances are high that he won’t need any hospitalization.
It’s entirely possible for someone who’s vaccinated for COVID to still get the virus. Such situations are known as “breakthrough infections”. Since it was known from the start that no vaccine could guarantee 100% efficiency, it’s obvious that infections can still occur after receiving a COVID jab, whether it’s from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Sputnik V, and so on.
According to Our World in Data, 43.3% of the world’s population has been vaccinated for COVID with at least one of the necessary doses. The same source says that 5.95 billion vaccine doses have been administered worldwide, while 28.87 million are administered every day.
Once again, we’ve been proven that the coronavirus doesn’t care how rich or poor somebody is.
