Chrissy Teigen shared a photo of herself posed in a disposable paper medical gown as she urged her female fans to keep up to date with their Pap smear tests in an Instagram post on Sunday.

The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took to the social media site directly from the examination room, wearing nothing but the paper towel gown and a protective face mask, as she prepared to undergo a Pap smear procedure.

"Don't forget to keep up with your paps and have your boobs touched even though the world is ending," wrote Chrissy, who recently had her breast implants removed and replaced.

A Papanicolaou test is used to check for cervical cancer, while annual healthy woman check-ups include a breast exam to check for signs of breast cancer.

Chrissy recently underwent surgery to reverse a boob job she had done at the age of 20, after experiencing discomfort.

"You have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed," she explained. "I want them out now. If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift. I think you're supposed to replace them (implants) every 10 years.

"But when you have kids you think about (the risks of) surgery and I think, 'This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery'," Chrissy added.

The star shares 4-year-old daughter, Luna, and 2-year-old son, Miles, with husband John Legend.

Health officials and lawmakers are urging protesters to get tested for COVID-19 after thousands broke Covid-19 infection precautions during widespread demonstrations.

As the global COVID-19 cases rose past 6.5 million on Thursday, health officials and lawmakers in the U.S. worried that the second wave of Covid-19 will arrive sooner than predicted.

California reported a rise in infections after protests and looting in response to the death of a Black man in police custody in Minneapolis.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on protesters to get tested after a spike in cases in several hotspots.

"I'm not a nervous Nellie, I'm just looking at the numbers," said Cuomo during his daily press conference on Thursday.

Cuomo said all protesters have "a civic duty" to get tested. "Assume you are infected."

He noted that an estimated 30,000 people have protested in New York state. "Many wear masks. But there is no social distancing. Police are in their face ... If you were at a protest, get a test, please," Cuomo said.

Officials in Chicago expressed similar concerns and asked protesters to quarantine themselves for 14 days.

A White House valet has tested positive for the coronavirus. Trump's personal valet is part of a military unit that works with the president and the first family.

President Trump confirmed he has had little contact with the infected valet. Trump was notified of the valet's test result on Wednesday and the president was again tested for the virus, which was negative.

It's unclear if the valet is symptomatic.

The president and Vice President Mike Pence are each tested several times a week for the potentially deadly virus. White House staff and Trump's cabinet members are also tested weekly, but new guidelines were issued on Thursday to test White House staffers daily.

A former CDC official urged President Trump to quarantine himself for 14 days since someone who works close to him has tested positive.

Dr. Cyrus Shahpar recommended that the president "quarantine for 14 days from the last contact with the confirmed case."

Dr. Shahpar told CNN:

"We all don't want to transmit disease. In this case, as a high visibly person, I think he should set an example and really go into that quarantine of 14 days. And don't put too much stock into one negative test. It takes time to develop, you know, enough virus to test positive. So, one test today doesn't necessarily mean that you know, over the next few days, it may not be something different."

Tanzanian President John Magufuli suspended the director of the national health laboratory and ordered an investigation after a goat, sheep and pawpaw (fruit) tested positive for the coronavirus that causes Covid-19.

Magufuli said on Sunday the tests were "faulty" after samples from the animals and a piece of fruit came back positive.

"This clearly states that it was likely that some people were being tested positive when in fact they are not infected by the coronavirus," Magufuli said. "Are we now supposed to quarantine goats and fruits?"

Magufuli also fired the head of the government Medical Stores Department, which oversees distribution of medical supplies and equipment to government hospitals.

The President's ministry of health sent in the non-human tests, along with false names and ages -- without informing the lab technicians of the samples' origins.

Catherine Sungura, acting head of communications at the ministry of health, said in a statement on Monday the lab director and its quality assurance manager had been immediately suspended "to pave way for the investigation".

As of Monday, Tanzania has confirmed 480 cases of Covid-19 and 18 deaths, according to REUTERS.

Africa has reported the lowest fatalities and cases of Covid-19 as compared to the United States, which also has many questionable Covid-19-related deaths.

A Black doctor, who is best known for testing homeless people for COVID-19 in Miami, was handcuffed outside his house and charged with trash dumping.

Dr. Armen Henderson spoke out about the racial profiling incident that occurred on Friday, April 10. Henderson says he was unloading supplies outside his home when Miami cops rolled up.

Henderson, an internist at the University of Miami Health System, wrote about the incident on Facebook on Saturday.

"The Miami Police Department has officers trying to cuff me for unloading boxes of tents in front of my own damn house. Tents I was going to take to the houseless," he wrote.

"No mask, all up in my face, pointing fingers trying to intimidate me like I was his child," Henderson wrote.

"If was a fairer-skin person or a white person, just doing the same thing, I don't believe he would've stopped me," Henderson told CNN.

"It was the nature of the stop that really concerned me."

Henderson said he was cuffed when he asked the officer for his ID.

Henderson called out to his wife who was standing on the front porch with their two children.

"All of a sudden, he's got his finger all up in my face, he's pointing at me, yelling at me, saying, 'You're going to call me sir, call me sergeant.' It was very humiliating."

Henderson said the cop told his wife he was being arrested because of his attitude. Henderson then said the cop removed the handcuffs and drove off.

Henderson said he wanted an apology from the cop.

Chief of Police Jorge Colina released a video statement after Henderson's story went viral.

"The City of Miami Police Department does not condone or accept profiling of any kind," Colina said. "We've been made aware of a video that's been circulating of an encounter that occurred on Friday on April the 10. This encounter involves a City of Miami Police Sergeant, who stops outside of a resident’s home."

Colina stated "We have had a litany of complaints pertaining to illegal dumping."

He said the cop observed a cargo van parked in front of the house, "where there appears to be trash that's being offloaded. That's the genesis of the stop."

Colina said Henderson's complaint will be investigated.

Utah Jazz stars Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and the rest of the Utah Jazz staff have been cleared of the coronavirus by the state's health department.

The team received the good news on Friday. Neither player was hospitalized, though Gobert said he briefly lost his sense of taste and smell.

Mitchell took to his Instagram page to share the happy news with his followers. Even though he is cleared and he can't pass the virus on to others, he said he will stay home to ease the fears of the public.

The NBA cancelled the rest of the season after Gobert tested positive. Mitchell tested positive the next day, while the rest of the Jazz players and staff tested negative.

According to the USA Today, Oklahoma City health officials took 58 tests kits to Utah's Vivant Center to test the players and staff on site because the health department considered it a "public health decision."

Other NBA players who tested positive include 2 unidentified Lakers players, as well as Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood, Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart, 3 unidentified Philadelphia 76ers players and 3 unidentified Nets players. The Denver Nuggets also reported one member of their organization tested positive.

Cardi B wants answers about the U.S. government's overreaction to the coronavirus pandemic as at least 5 states are on lockdown.

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper hasn't been shy about voicing her views and, on Saturday night, the 27-year-old took to Instagram to question why NBA superstars who tested positive say they feel fine and have no symptoms.

The mother-of-one was confused about who should get tested if every celebrity and athlete who has tested positive had no symptoms.

"Let's say that I have the coronavirus right now, ok? How am I supposed to know I got it!? Because sometimes I be like, 'If you have a cough you have it," she continued. "But then I be seeing these basketball players who say, like, 'Yeah, I have the coronavirus, but I don't got no symptoms'.

"So, how the f**k am I supposed to know when I am supposed to, like, get tested for it?", she concluded. "That's my problem right there. Y'all ain't really saying what it is! Tell me what it is and what it ain't!"

In a similar broadcast earlier in the week, the "Kream" star confessed she was "losing my f**king mind" as she begged for answers from the government about the pandemic.

The rapper is among those who question the government's overreaction to the virus that kills only 1% of those infected. Many Americans are on the unemployment line due to state lockdown orders as half the country is on quarantine.

It was business as usual for Kentucky Senator Rand Paul who attended 3 fundraisers and worked out in the Senate gym after he tested positive for the coronavirus.

According to The Washington Post, the 57-year old politician worked out in the Senate gym on Sunday morning, and has been going about his daily business despite the positive diagnosis.

Paul, like other notables who are infected with the flu-like virus, has no symptoms and says he feels fine.

Most people believe the nation's overreaction to the coronavirus causes more harm than the virus itself.

Paul's office did not respond to an email from The Fix requesting the date he took the test, nor did the office staff provide an answer to that question from The Washington Post.

One of Paul's colleagues expressed outrage over his lackadaisical attitude toward the virus.

"This, America, is absolutely irresponsible," tweeted Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) on Sunday. "You cannot be near other people while waiting for coronavirus test results. It endangers others & likely increases the spread of the virus."

Paul is the First U.S. senator to test positive for COVID-19. Two other Congressmen also tested positive for COVID-19 and numerous others have self-isolated after coming in contact with infected colleagues.

Despite the extreme measures being undertaken in Democratic cities, the fatality rate for the virus is still around 1% and decreasing daily. Many say the mass hysteria is unwarranted and unprecedented.

President Trump said his administration will take two weeks to decide on the next course of action to combat the virus.

Noting that the anti-malarial drug Chloroquine has serious side effects for Black people, Trump tweeted: "WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!"
