Denver Broncos star Von Miller tweeted on Thursday night that he tested coronavirus negative two weeks after announcing that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19.
“I got my results back. I'm "negative" for Covid-19, "tweeted Miller.
Miller published his diagnosis on April 16, saying he wanted to show that the virus could affect anyone, even a young world-class athlete, in good shape.
Miller, who has asthma, was under the care of the Broncos' team doctors and has been quarantined at his home in the Denver area for the past two weeks.
Through a stream on Instagram Live during the NFL draft last weekend, Miller offered some fun draft analysis through an N95 mask at his home.
Miller is the second active NFL player to recognize positive tests during the coronavirus pandemic that sickened more than 3 million people worldwide and killed more than 230,000 people worldwide, including about 63,000 confirmed deaths in the U.S.
The Super Bowl 50 MVP is the highest profile American athlete to announce that he has hired COVID-19. In March, NBA star Kevin Durant was among the many Brooklyn Nets members to be positive.
Los Angeles Rams center Brian Allen said last month that he tested positive for COVID-19 several weeks earlier. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton revealed in March that he also tested positive for the virus.
Prior to the draft, Broncos general manager John Elway said, "I am proud that Von is helping and everyone with the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus. It shows that it can affect anyone. I am happy that Von is doing well, which is good, but I also hope it has attracted more attention. ”
