Broncos Von Miller confirms he no longer has coronavirus

Share This Post

Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller has announced he has now tested negative for coronavirus two weeks after first testing positive.

Miller shared a video statement on Twitter on April 17 when he was first diagnosed with the virus.

In it, he urged everyone to “stay safe, stay inside, practice social distancing and this this thing serious”.

The disease has been sweeping through the United States and across the world, with devastating impact on the global sporting calendar.

The NBA was the first league in the world to cancel any upcoming fixtures indefinitely in a bid to help stem the spread of the disease.

With the NFL off-season in full swing, staff and player contact has been limited with the league taking the unprecedented step of holding a virtual draft with relative success last week.

The NFL expects the season to get underway as scheduled but is preparing for possible delays to the season in September.

Linebacker Von Miller is the first NFL player to confirm he had contracted the potent virus.

The 31-year-old, who has spent his entire decade-long career with the Broncos, elected to share his diagnosis publicly to show that nobody is safe from the virus.

A statement from the Denver Broncos released after Von Miller’s diagnosis said: “After experiencing flu-like symptoms, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has tested positive for COVID-19.

“Von has elected to share his diagnosis publicly to emphasise that anyone can be affected with cornavirus.

“Von is doing well and recovering at home in self-isolation. He remains under the care of team doctors, who are following all coronavirus treatment procedures to ensure a safe environment for Von and our community.

“Von is the first member of the Broncos’ organization known to have tested positive for COVID-19.”
