The NBA star Kevin Durant and four other players of the Brooklyn Nets were positive for the coronavirus.
“Take care, beware and put in quarantine. We will overcome this,” said the athlete to the newspaper The Athletic.
This Tuesday, the franchise of the Nets reported to four players infected although not revealed the identities of the sick. She also said that only one of them had symptoms characteristic of the COVID-19.
Two other NBA players had already given positive coronavirus: Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz) and Christian Wood (Detroit Pistons), although none of them presented symptoms.
After the news of the spread of Gobert, the NBA suspended the season “until further notice”. In addition, put in quarantine the members of the teams that faced the Utah Jazz in 10 previous days (Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors).
Although the Nets were not among those teams, ESPN revealed that these had hired a private company to perform the testing of the COVID-19 to their members.
