Fame and wealth can’t keep you safe from coronavirus, and some world-class athletes are the proof for this
Fame and wealth can’t keep you safe from coronavirus, and some world-class athletes are the proof for this. In this article, we will present to you some of the famous sports stars who got sick from COVID-19 since the beginning of the world pandemic. Let’s go!
Utah Jazz’ Rudy Golbert is one of the first NBA players who got diagnosed with COVID-19. Few days before this, he made an idiotic thing when he demonstratively touched all the microphones and recorders ahead of him during a press conference.
Argentine football star Paulo Dybala is one of Juventus’ players who got sick from COVID-19. He’s now recovered from the virus, but in a statement to the press, he said that he had some severe difficulties in breathing while he was infected.
Mikel Arteta is the manager of the English football club Arsenal. He got sick even before the Premier League was stopped by the FA. Arteta’s diagnosis was one of the main reasons why they decided to stop the league in England.
Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant is one of NBA’s biggest stars, but this didn’t keep him safe from the coronavirus. In a statement to the public, he called for everyone to stay safe and in quarantine. “We’re going to get through this,” Durant said.
The Italian defender Daniele Rugani is another one of Juventus’ stars who got sick from COVID-19. This is not really surprising as Italy is one of the countries that got hurt the most from the virus. The Serie A has been stopped, and it’s still not clear when the league would be restarted. Italy is still struggling in fighting the infection, and many people are losing their lives.
The basketball star Donovan Mitchell is another one of Utah Jazz’ aces who got infected with the coronavirus. In an Instagram post, Mitchell called everyone to be responsible in the situation and take care of their own health and others’.
Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of Premier League’s brightest talents, but also one of the players that got diagnosed with coronavirus. Hudson-Odoi is now healthy, but he’s still isolating himself from others.
The New Orleans Saints’ coach Sean Payton announced to the press on March 19 that he got positive for COVID-19. He said that he was surprised to see this happening because he didn’t have any fever as a symptom.
The former NBA star Jason Collins also announced his positive test for coronavirus. He said that most likely he got the virus during a trip to New York City at the beginning of March. As you probably know, New York is one of the most infected cities from COVID-19 at the moment.
James L. Dolan
James L. Dolan is the owner of the New York Knicks, and he also got positive for coronavirus. He stated that he almost fell no symptoms of the disease, but it didn’t stop him from having it.
