The COVID19 pandemic continues to affect even some of the most anticipated superheroes and villains.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, His Wife and Daughters, 4 and 2, Test Positive for COVID-19. “I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn’t, it was my entire family,” the star said in an Instagram video Wednesday.
The actor, 48, shared that he and 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. They are, thankfully, now feeling better, he told fans.
“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,” Johnson began his video message, shared on Instagram.
“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,” the Jumanji star continued. “And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.”
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.
“I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn’t, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut. But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We’re on the other end of it, we’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy.”
“If you guys are having family and friends over to your house, you know them, you trust them. They can be quarantining just like you guys. You still never know. You never know,” he said, suggesting to have visitors “tested the day before.”
“Don’t let your guard down, boosts your immunity with antioxidants, vitamins, things of that nature,” he added.
“Wear your mask. It is a fact, and it is the right thing to do. And it’s the responsible thing to do,” he continued, adding that people like his mother with pre-existing conditions are protected by the face coverings.
A Warner Bros spokeswoman said: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Then later on, some articles are revealing it’s the Twilight vampire turned superhero Robert Pattinson who has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus, bringing filming of The Batman to a standstill.
COVID19 is the real villain, and it’s the fact that we should wear masks and observe social distancing.
