Kevin Durant is one of four Brooklyn Nets players who have tested positive for COVID-19, better known as Coronavirus.

Durant told The Athletic that he is feeling fine. “Everyone be careful, take care of yourself and quarantine. We’re going to get through this,” he said.

According to the statement from the Nets, only one of the four men have shown symptoms of the virus. It is unclear whether or not Durant is the one who is showing symptoms.

“The organization is currently notifying anyone who has had known contact with the players, including recent opponents, and is working closely with state and local health authorities on reporting,” the Nets said in a statement.

Yesterday (Mar. 16), Idris Elba had announced in a video that he had also tested positive for Coronavirus.

“This morning I tested positive for Covid 19,” he wrote on Instagram. “I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing. No panic.”

In the video, Elba explained how he decided to get tested after he realized he had been exposed to someone who tested positive for the virus.

“I didn’t have any symptoms. I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who had also tested positive,” he said. “I found out last Friday that they were tested positive. I quarantined myself and got a test immediately and got the results back today.”

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson told fans that they have been quarantined in Australia with the virus.

Hanks posted a photo himself and Wilson and wrote: ”Hello folks. Rita Wilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no?”
