Just when I thought we finally had a scenarist who married good writing with the sensibilities of commercial film making, #Sachy has left us all too soon, leaving behind a large void among the finest writers of our industry. Thoughts and prayers with his family. Rest in peace.

Madonna tests positive for Coronavirus, says she plans to “breathe in the COVID-19 air”

Singer Madonna says she plans to “breathe in the COVID-19 air” after testing positive for antibodies. The 61-year-old took to Instagram on Thursday to post a video that she called “Quarantine Diaries No. 14”, reports people.com. “I took a test the other day, and I found out that I have the antibodies,” Madonna said in the clip, in which she uses a typewriter.

She added that she plans to spend some time out of her house. Also Read – Vaanam Kottatum meta review: Vikram Prabhu’s family drama is predictable fare

“So tomorrow I’m just going to go for a long drive in the car, I’m going to roll down the window and I’m going to breathe in the COVID-19 air. Yup. I hope the sun is shining,” she said in the video. Also Read – South movies this week: Vaanam Kottattum, Seeru, Ayyappanum Koshiyum

Madonna also shared a few photos on her Instagram Story, with “#staysafe” and “#staysane” written on them.

However, it is not clear if having antibodies is equal to immunity. “If antibodies do provide immunity, we don’t know what titer or amount of antibodies would be protective or the duration that protection would last,” the CDC’s website states. “CDC scientists are conducting studies to better understand the level of antibodies needed for protection, the duration of that protection, and the factors associated with whether a person develops a protective antibody response.”

“Harnessing the strength and knowledge of the research community, the Accelerator’s critical scientific progress will inform how we end this pandemic and prevent future impact from the virus,” Madonna wrote in a statement on her website. “I send enormous gratitude and strength to the courageous first responders, medical professionals and scientists who are protecting our communities, those suffering and our most vulnerable.”

“Here’s the good news: tomorrow’s a new day and I’m going to wake up and I’m going to feel differently,” Madonna said. “Start all over again.”
