Former NBA player Jason Collins tests positive for coronavirus

Jason Collins, who became in 2014 the first openly gay player to play in the NBA, spent 13 seasons in the league and announced his retirement before the start of the 2014-15 season. He currently is an NBA Cares ambassador.

He tweeted: “I believe I got it while on a trip to NYC at the beginning of the month for the Brooklyn Nets Pride night game. I had my first symptoms on Wed Mar 11. Terrible headache. A few days later I had a fever and then the cough. Please stay safe and continue to social distance. Thank you to every single health care worker out there that are our true heroes on the frontline. Please let’s try to flatten the curve & not overwhelm our health care system.”
