Dwayne Johnson and his family are recovering after having tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19.) Johnson revealed on social media Wednesday that he, his wife Lauren Hashian, and their daughters Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2, all have been sick with the virus, with the actor and his wife being particularly unwell. Thankfully, they are all now feeling much better.
Johnson said in his video message on Instagram.: “I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on things that have been going on on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now. So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19. I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well.”
Johnson said that he and his family contracted the contagious respiratory virus from family friends, who he said are “devastated” that they unwittingly spread the virus. He added that while his daughters “bounced back” from the virus pretty quickly, he and Lauren “had a rough go at it.” He also urged his fans to exercise extreme caution when interacting with others to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
