Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson Says He and his Family Tested Positive for Coronavirus

 Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson announced on Wednesday that he and his family tested positive for coronavirus.

Johnson, 48, said he. his wife Lauren, 35, and their daughters Jasmine and Tiana, aged four and two, contracted the virus about two-and-a-half weeks ago.

The former wrestler, who is now the world's highest-paid actor, said he, his wife and two daughters caught the virus despite being "disciplined" about health protection.

He said the positive tests were "a kick in the gut".

He said his daughters had a sore throat and cough, but otherwise no serious symptoms. He also added the family contracted the virus through family friends.

Now, he added, "we're on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we're healthy."

They caught it from "very close family friends" who, in turn, had no idea how they had been infected.

"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," Johnson said in a video posted on his Instagram account.

"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.

"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 has nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is the right thing to do."
