Dwayne Johnson And Family Tested Positive For Covid-19, Actor Confirms It On Instagram
Former wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson and family tested positive for Covid-19
Former wrestling superstar and Hollywood actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on Thursday on Instagram informed his fans that he and his family tested positive for the novel coronavirus a few weeks ago. In a video, the actor earnestly urged his fans and loved ones to adopt all the necessary precautions deemed to fight the deadly contagion. The Rock also assured that he, his wife Lauren and two children Tia and Jazzy are doing much better now.
In the video, Dwayne Johnson said, “This was one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and personally too. This is so much different than getting nasty injuries or being broke, which I have been multiple times in my life. My number one priority is to protect my family. I wish it was only me, but it wasn’t so it is a real kick in the gut. But I am happy to tell you that we as a family are good, on the other side of it, and we are no longer contagious. We have gotten through Covid-19 stronger and healthier.”
“I am counting my blessings because we are well aware that this isn’t always the case. I have had my best friends lose their parents, their loved ones to this virus. It is relentless. Babies can have little to no symptoms at all, so for our babies, Jazzy and Tia, they had a little sore throat, but that was it. But it was different for Lauren and I. We had a rough go, but we got through,” he added.
Explaining that he and his family contracted the virus from close kins, The Rock said, “We picked up Covid-19 from very close family friends who we love and trust. They were devastated. So having your friends, family over, loved ones over…now apply even greater discipline over who you are going to call over. Take an aggressive measure, get them tested because you never know. There should also be a greater commitment to health and wellness and we should be doing everything we can to boost our immunity system. We gotta control the controllables. When your immune system is not compromised, you have a shot at not getting Covid-19.”
