( ENSPIRE Trending News ) NFL Star Von Miller Contracts Covid-19

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller, has recently been quarantined in his Denver-area home after he tested positive for the coronavirus. Friday he made a statement saying ‘”Im proof anybody can get it.”

Miller states that he took every precaution to try and avoid the virus but still ended up contracting it. “What keeps me at peace is knowing I did everything I was supposed to do,” said Miller, who announced Thursday he had tested positive and is now resting at home. “I was here at home.

I’ve been here at home for about a month now, and I’ve probably left the house a total of four times. And when I left, I didn’t get out of the car or anything like that.”I didn’t have any contact. I was just riding with my brother up the street to get some food. I literally took it serious, I wasn’t out and about. It hit me right here in my house.”

Miller, who has asthma, said Friday he elected to get tested after he had a cough about six days ago and his inhaler “wasn’t working like it normally should.” Miller said he had limited contact with teammates over the past few weeks as well.
