HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Betty White, who is 98 years old, is doing well despite the coronavirus outbreak, according to TODAY.

Concern over White’s safety arose on Twitter Wednesday night after Tom Hanks announced that he and his wife, Rita Wilson, had contracted the virus.

White’s fans were concerned for her health, especially since people over the age of 60 and anyone with serious medical conditions are most at risk for the virus.

However, one of White’s representatives confirmed to TODAY on Thursday that “Betty is fine.”

Currently, there are nearly 126,400 confirmed cases of the virus globally. U.S. cases have ballooned this week, nearly tripling since Monday at more than 1,300. 

There are 60,000 people who have contracted the disease and recovered.
