Pistons’ Christian Wood tests positive for the coronavirus

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The fear within the NBA was if there was one player with coronavirus that it would spread to others. Well, that has been the case.

On Saturday, it was announced that Detroit Pistons player Christian Wood has been diagnosed with the coronavirus, as well. He is now the third player, who has been diagnosed with this disease.

He may have received it after a recent game against the Utah Jazz. Two of their players have been tested positive for the coronavirus.

Those players are Rudy Gobert, who shut down the NBA after the positive test. He may have also caused a positive test for star Donovan Mitchell.

According to the Associated Press, Wood is “feeling fine.” His positive test came one week after the Pistons played the Jazz.

The Pistons — who did not mention Wood’s name — said the player is in self isolation.

“A player on the Detroit Pistons, who is under the care of team medical staff and in self-isolation since Wednesday night, was tested for COVID-19,” the team said. “A preliminary positive result came back on March 14. The health and safety of our players, our organization, those throughout our league, and all those potentially impacted by this situation is paramount.”

This disease impacts the elderly and those with per-existing health conditions the most. However, for the majority of the people, there are mild or moderate signs that a person, who tests positive for it, would show.

These people will have a fever and coughing. Older and those with pre-existing health conditions will have severe conditions, like pneumonia.

There is a very high survival rate for those who test positive for it that are showing mild signs, who will recover in two weeks, according to the World Health Organization.

However, those, who are showing the severe signs, like pneumonia, they could take three-to-six weeks to recover from the disease — if they do recover at all.

In China, where the virus started, there has been more than 80,000 cases. So far, there have been more than 58,000 people, who have recovered, for the diagnosis.

“The darkest nights produce the brightest stars,” Wood wrote on Instagram earlier in the week, his comment coming alongside a photo he posted of him dunking over Gobert — the NBA’s reigning defensive player of the year and a first-time All-Star this season.”
