Hollywood actor and former wrestler, Dwayne Johnson, also known as ‘The Rock’, has tested positive for the coronavirus.
He announced this on Thursday, September 3.
He said his wife and two daughters also tested positive.
Johnson, 48, his wife, 35, and their two daughters, Jasmine and Tiana, aged four and two respectively, contracted the virus about a week ago.
Speaking in a self-recorded video, he said he caught the virus from a close family member, who he says have no idea how they contacted it.
“… My wife Lauren, my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for Covid-19. This has been the most challenging days in our lives. Testing positive for Covid -19 is much different thing like overcoming injuries and keeping away from certain things. The reason why I feel this is different is that protecting my family is my number one priority but it Is difficult this time around,” he said.
“It is nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is a fact. And it is the right thing to do,” he added.
Dwayne Johnson followed his father Rocky to become a professional wrestler and a world wrestling entertainment (WWE). He became a huge success in the sport before turning to acting , starring in blockbuster movies such as the Scorpion King, Fast and Furious and Jumaji.
