Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson And His Family Recovering from Covid-19
NEWSMAN – Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson best know as “The Rock” has revealed that his family recently tested for coronavirus.
“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,” Johnson said in an instagram video which he shared.
The 48 year old former wrestler, his wife Lauren Hashian, 35, and their two daughters all tested positive for COVID-19 about three weeks ago, but confirmed that are “no longer contagious,” BBC reported
“Testing positive for Covid-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times,” he added. “I wish it was only me that tested positive. It was my entire family and it was a kick in the gut,” Johnson said.
He revealed that they were infected apparently by close friends who visited the family’s home, and has since implemented new rules about guests.
“Having your friends over, having your family members over, your loved ones, of course, you want that because you want that connection and you want to be with the people who you love and care about,” he said. “My takeaway here isn’t necessarily to keep them away, I’m not saying that, but what I am saying now is apply an even greater discipline to having people over to your house,” he said.
Johnson further urged people to wear their facemasks. “It baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, will take this idea of wearing masks and make it part of a political agenda. It has nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is the right thing to do,” he said.
The actor is said to have topped Forbes highest-paid actors list, earning a staggering $87.5 million.
