First 2 Black People w/ Coronavirus - NBA Players Have 'Mild' Symptoms

1st 2 Black People w/ Coronavirus - NBA Players Have 'Mild' Symptoms!!

Yesterday two of the NBAs top players, Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert were diagnosed with the coronavirus. The two NBA players are believed to be the first 2 Black people to test positive for the disease, outside of China.

MTO News has learned that both players are doing extremely well - and seem healthy.

According to Rudy - who is active one Twitter, he feels "great". Team officials suggested that he's suffering from "very mild" flu-like symptoms. Rudy, 27, who is half Black and half white , is expected to make a full recovery in no time.

Here's Rudy on Twitter:


His teammate Donovan Mitchell is doing even better, Despite having the "deadly" coronavirus, the NBA baller has "no" flu like symptoms. Here's Donovan:

The two NBA players are the first two Black people outside of China known to have tested positive with the disease.

China has documented a single case of a Black man from Africa coming down with the coronavirus. According to Chinese doctors, the man was given care at the hospital and lik Donovan and Rudy, quickly recovered.

The coronavirus disease - while spreading across Europe and Asia - seems to not have taken hold in Africa. That fact has some doctors puzzled.

And the lack of apparent Black infections, leads to the question - are Black people somehow less susceptible to the coronavirus? It may be too early to tell, but it's not beyond the realm of possibility.

A recent Canadian based study found that Black people had a "stronger" immune response to infection compared to Americans of European descent. The "stronger" response makes Black people more protected from disease, but it makes them more susceptible to autoimmune disorders.
