US actor / ex-wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has revealed in a social media post that he and his family have recovered after testing positive to COVID-19.
In an Instagram video he told his followers the family all tested positive about 3 weeks ago.
“I can tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family,” he said. “And for me personally, too, as well, and I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.”
Whilst Johnson’s two young daughters, aged 4 and 2, exhibited mild symptoms, he and his wife, Lauren Hashian, combatted a more sinister illness.
“But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We are on the other end of it. We are on the other side. We are no longer contagious. And we are – thank god – we are healthy,” he said.
“I’ve gotten knocked about and gotten my ass kicked a little bit in the past with some challenges, but 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.
Johnson featured in HBO comedy Ballers from 2015 – 2019 and due to film Young Rock, an autobiographical comedy about his life, in Australia.
