Unless you practice the safety measures, coronavirus is not letting you off.
Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest sprinter is tested positive for Covid-19 a few days after he attended a party for his 34th birthday celebration (last Friday). According to The Guardian, most of the people who went to the party did not have masks on them nor did they practice physical distancing.
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist has posted a video of himself, isolating at home since then as he waited for the test results.

“I did a test on Saturday to leave because I work. I am trying to be responsible so I am going to stay in and stay here for my friends,” Bolt said.
“I’m having no symptoms so I am going to quarantine myself and wait for the confirmation, to see what is the protocol and how I should go about quarantining myself,” he added. “Until then, I am saying anyone who has had contact with me should quarantine by themselves just to be safe, and just to take it easy.
Jamaica’s health ministry has confirmed the news that Usain Bolt is infected with Covid-19. Moreover, Bolt has also been formally informed of his condition, as explained by the Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr Christopher Tufton. He mentioned that the practice of safety measures during this pandemic applies to everyone and no one should be discriminated.
Those who were in close contact with him previously during the party are now being tracked down. Several other sports stars like England footballer Raheem Sterling, cricketer Chris Gayle and Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey too were present at the party.
Additionally, a Manchester City spokesman said Sterling, as a Premier League, will be tested for Covid-19 before returning for the start of the new football season.
Usain Bolt has logged off from the track in 2017. He holds the world’s record in the 100m (9.58s) and 200m (19.19s) sprint events, during 2009 World Championship, Berlin.
Stay safe everyone!
