Von Miller urged his social media followers to take Coronavirus “serially” after the COVID-1 was identified by the Denver Broncos’ star linebacker.
After being revealed as the first known active NFL player to infect the Brian Allen virus at the Los Angeles Rams center, Miller confirmed that he had tested positive.
The Broncos announced that eight-time Pro Bowler Miller, who was the MVP of Super Bowl 50, is self-contained at home and is being cared for by team doctors.
In a post on his Instagram story, Miller thanked those who offered their support.
“Thanks for the love of all,” he wrote.
“That’s it dope! AF! I’m going to do what I’m about to do!
“Take it seriously It’s definitely for real.”
Allen’s offensive lineman Allen revealed the details of his fight against coronavirus in a Q&A with Athletic so he said he couldn’t smell anything with aromas of foul-smelling salt.
“I tested positive three weeks ago then I actually tested positive again last week,” he said.
“I won’t have to take the test again even though I was free from the flu for a period of time.”
About how long the doctors told her before the treatment and her smell returned, Allen added: “Initially they told me it couldn’t come back for six to eight months, but everything is just speculation at the moment.
“I could not achieve it as bad as other people. It is ruining many lives.
“But to me it’s just a flu and the loss of smell and taste I’m lucky.”
