Politicians, celebrities, and public figures, at the end of the day, are all human beings just like us and they too are susceptible of contracting COVID-19.
And the latest figure to be infected by the pandemic is the fastest man in history, Usain Bolt.
Threw a birthday bash
According to Reuters
, the eight-time Olympic gold medalist was recently tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently self-isolating himself at home.
Apparently, the Jamaican threw a big birthday bash to celebrate his 34th
birthday last week - with most attendants reportedly not wearing face masks.
On Tuesday (25 August), the sprinter posted a video of him lying down at home with the caption “Stay safe my people”.
The video was posted prior to his COVID-19 test results and he said that he will be self-isolating himself while waiting for the safety protocols given to him by the government.
Bolt took the test on Saturday (22 August), just a day after celebrating his birthday.
Fans and celebrity friends left encouraging comments for the athlete and also wished him a speedy recovery.
So guys, the next time you want to throw a big birthday bash, always remember that COVID-19 still exists and always wear a face mask, practise social distancing, and frequently sanitise or wash your hands.
