In quarantine: which of the athletes was diagnosed with coronavirus
Every day, the coronavirus is causing more and more damage to professional sports. Many basketball and football clubs are already under quarantine as their players tested positive for COVID-19. Here are some of the athletes who were directly affected by the virus.
The US National Basketball Association announced an emergency suspension for the 2019/2020 season on March 12. The report notes that the reason was the detection of coronavirus in one of the players. As it turned out later, the French center of Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert was infected.
Prior to the results of the analysis, the athlete in every possible way emphasized indifference to the epidemic. He touched the things of his teammates, specially touched the microphones with his hands at the press conference and laughed at the panic around.
After Gobert learned of the positive test results, he posted a big post on his Instagram and apologized to his fans. Rudy publicly repented and admitted his own actions as frivolous. He also promised that he would do everything in his power to prevent the spread of the virus.
Later, Gobert's teammate was diagnosed with the coronavirus. According to media reports, Utah star Donovan Mitchell was unhappy with his colleague's behavior, who probably infected him.
Yesterday, the basketball player recorded a video message for the fans, in which he thanked everyone for their support and encouraged the fans by announcing his good health. Days in isolation do not make Donovan happy: he plays video games every day, missing communication and what he loves.
