People around the globe remain in a state of unrest as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc, having reached 26 million worldwide cases and nearly a million deaths, all but ensuring that 2020 has no intention of offering us a reprieve by the end of the year. The United States is still shouldering the brunt of the outbreak with 258,000 cases alone, and with lawmakers in a seemingly never-ending state of contention regarding the advice of health officials, it’s likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future.
It’s a scary time for anyone in the US, of course, with the overwhelming majority opting to social distance and spend more time at home with their families. But even a quick trip to the grocery store could lead to infection for the unlucky among us, and because of that, no one is truly safe from the pandemic right now – including celebrities.
Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram this week to inform his fans that he and his family tested positive for COVID-19, citing it as one of the most difficult things they’ve ever had to endure together. Thankfully, he also stated that everyone had recovered and were no longer considered contagious, meaning that they’ve hopefully avoided any serious complications from the virus.
Naturally, due to Johnson being one of Hollywood’s most likeable people, it didn’t take long for his fans to begin piping up with well wishes, prayers and positive thinking to show support for the actor and his family. And you can take a look at a few of the loving tweets below:
Yikes! I hope they all are doing better. Prayers. I wish the virus would go away. ?❤️
