NBA legend Patrick Ewing said he has tested positive for the new coronavirus.
“This virus is serious and should not be taken lightly. I want to encourage everyone to stay safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones,” Ewing, a former player with the New York Knicks, said in a Twitter post.
Georgetown University, where Ewing is coaching the basketball men’s team, said in a statement the Hall of Famer is under care and isolated in a hospital.
“I’ll be fine and we will all get through this,” Ewing was quoted as saying.
