Rudy Gobert seems to be truly feeling the affects of his coronavirus diagnosis, since he became the first major athlete to test positive for it.

The Utah Jazz center took to Twitter on Sunday and updated his status and revealed that his symptoms are getting worse.

It was just last Wednesday when it was revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and been 11 days since and the Jazz star has quarantined himself.

Most people who have coronavirus have little-to-no symptoms, and most patients with mild cases of the virus usually take 14 days to completely recover from the virus.

Since his diagnosis, several other players have contracted the virus that include Kevin Durant, Marcus Smart and Gobert’s teammate, Donovan Mitchell, 3 other players on the Brooklyn Nets, and two unknown players on the Lakers.

Worldwide, more than 300,000 people have tested positive for the coronavirus.
