Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has revealed that he and his family recently contracted Covid-19. And he called it “one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family.”
The former wrestler who is now the world’s highest-paid actor revealed the news on Instagram.
48-year-old Johnson and his 35-year-old wife along with his two daughters acged four and two, caught the virus two and a half weeks ago. He caught it from “very close family friends” but they didn’t know where they’d caught it from initially.
And he used his Instagram post to urge respect and caution for the disease. And to wear your mask.
‘Wear your mask’
“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,” said Johnson.
“My number one priority is to always protect my family.”
“We are counting our blessings right now because we’re well aware that it isn’t always the case that you get on the other end of Covid-19 stronger and healthier,” said Johnson.
“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.”
The Rock added: “We’re on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we’re healthy.”
