Some have even become motivated to start hunting for a cure themselves upon hearing R-Pattz has been struck down with the virus, posting their desired change in career and looking forward to getting straight into the lab and join vaccine efforts.

Just when we thought 2020 had done its worst damage, the Twilight star has hit headlines, and it's really just about as much as people can take...

Another said, "NOT ROBERT PATTINSON HAVING COVID. I HTE THIS DUMBASS YEAR."
We agree with both statements.

Some even threw in a pretty niche Twilight reference, pointing out Robert can't catch a break after also falling ill with the Spanish Influenza (which is what Edward Cullen caught on his path to becoming a vampire.)
This is, of course a joke, and we, and fans, wish Robert the absolute speediest of recoveries.

Production for Batman ground to a halt in March when the pandemic first kicked off and had only just resumed filming in September, with safety precautions including regular testing in place, which is when R-Pattz was found to have the virus.
It is currently unclear if, or how many members of the cast or crew have also tested positive for COVID-19.
