Von Miller Second NFL Player To Contract Coronavirus.
Von Miller did test positive to coronavirus,making him the second NFL player to test positive after Los Angeles center Brian Allen confirmed he was recovering from the virus.”I’ve just been here in the crib and I started to get a little cough,” said Von Miller on 9News.
“You know I have asthma and I started getting a little cough a couple days ago. My girlfriend she told me when I was asleep she said my cough it didn’t sound normal.”
“It (my nebulizer) wasn’t working (after several days to address the cough) how I thought it would. My assistant said let’s go get tested. So I got tested, that was two days ago. I started to feel like normal yesterday and then this morning (my doctor) called me and told me.”
“It’s crazy. I have to be quarantined here at the house. There’s not really any medicine or anything like that.
“I’m not sure what’s going on but I tell you what, I’m in good spirits. I’m still Von Miller . I’m not feeling sick or hurting or anything like that.”
In a statement, the Broncos said: “After experiencing flu-like symptoms, Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19. He has elected to share his diagnosis publicly to emphasize that anyone can be afflicted with coronavirus.
Miller is doing well and recovering at home in self-isolation. He remains under the care of team doctors, who are following all coronavirus treatment procedures to ensure a safe environment for Von and our community.”
Agent Joby Branion earlier told USA Today that Von Miller felt compelled to speak on the topic.
