Daniel Dae Kim, TV star and Haverford College grad, tests positive for the coronavirus

TV star Daniel Dae Kim, an Easton native and Haverford College grad, announced Thursday that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Kim, who also has served as an executive producer on The Good Doctor, said in the video recorded at his home in Hawaii:
"Please, please stop the prejudiced and senseless violence against Asian people. Randomly beating elderly, sometimes homeless Asian Americans is cowardly, heartbreaking, and it's inexcusable," he said.
