Drake At Risk For Coronavirus After Doing THIS!
Over the past few months that the deadly coronavirus hit different countries in the world, it mainly teaches us one thing: no one is immune from this global pandemic.
People from all walks of life could be infected, whether you are an elderly, a regular citizen, a medical frontline, a legendary actor, a sports superstar, or even a country's top leader.
That is why the government and health sectors across the globe would never miss a day without reminding the public over and over again to practice proper handwashing, maintain social distancing, and stay at home as much as possible.
One of the high profile celebrities who recently caught COVID-19 is the National Basketball Association (NBA) star Kevin Durant.
On Tuesday, March 17, the Brooklyn Nets confirmed that four other athletes from the team tested positive from coronavirus.
"All four players are presently isolated and under the care of team physicians," the team's statement reads.
While the official statement did not name the infected team members, Durant confirmed his case through an interview with The Athletic.
"Everyone, be careful. Take care of yourself and quarantine," Durant said. "We're going to get through this."
As part of the precautionary measures, the team contacted people who had a recent encounter with the players and asked them to practice self-isolation to make sure they will not spread the virus in case they caught it.
"The organization is currently notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working closely with state and local health authorities on reporting," the statement added.
Drake Taking Proactive Precautions
One of the people who was recently in contact with the two-time NBA All-Star MVP is the famous singer Drake.
According to reports, the 33-year-old singer has already taken preventive measures by practicing self-quarantine to make sure he will not spread the virus in case he has contracted it.

Roughly eight days before Durant tested positive for coronavirus, he and Drake went out to party at West Hollywood's hotspot Nice Guy. They partied the night away following the Nets game' against the Clippers in Los Angeles.
