Opera Great Placido Domingo Says It’s His “Moral Duty” (Poor Choice of Words) to Tell us He’s Tested Positive for COVID 19


Opera great Placido Domingo has announced on Facebook that he has Trump Virus. In one post he says it’s his “moral duty” to report it, in another his “moral obligation.” Everyone wishes him well and hopes for a quick recovery. But “moral” anything might be a poor choice of words considering the recent #MeToo allegations against him. But you know, what can you do? It’s a strange time. He’s a great opera singer. When he gets better we can deal with the other stuff.

The main post:

“I feel it is my moral duty to announce to you that I have tested positive for COVID19, the Corona virus. My Family and I are all in self isolation for as long as it is deemed medically necessary. Currently we are all in good health but I experienced fever and cough symptoms therefore deciding to get tested and the result came back positive. I beg everyone to be extremely careful, follow the basic guidelines by washing your hands frequently, keeping at least a 6 feet distance from others, doing everything you can to stop the virus from spreading and please above all stay home if you can ! Together we can fight this virus and stop the current worldwide crisis, so we can hopefully return to our normal daily lives very soon. Please follow your local government’s guidelines and regulations for staying safe and protecting not just yourselves but our entire community.”
