Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Shares Emotional Video As Whole Family Tests Positive For Covid-19

'I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn't, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut.'


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has shared a candid a video to his Instagram channel, explaining that his family, which includes his wife Lauren Hashian and two daughters Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2, have tested positive to Covid-19.

A result that he describes as a real “kick in the gut”, Dwayne has explained that this virus has been one of his most challenging periods in life, despite many rounds in the ring throughout his career.

“Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times,” Johnson said.

Continuing, the star explained that his main priority is to mind and protect his family and so, he said they’ve been taking all the advised steps to recover and mind themselves.

The Johnson family caught the virus off close family and friends, who Dwayne noted as being “devastated” that they unwittingly spread Covid-19.

However, Dwayne who remained in good spirits throughout the video noted that thankfully, his family don’t have any issues that are a cause for hospitalisation.

“We’re no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy,” he added.

Dwayne also highlighted the importance of wearing a mask – symptoms or no symptoms. Currently, in Ireland, it is mandatory to wear a mask when on public transport, and in public spaces where others are; like supermarkets, retail stores and cinemas.

The general rule is that when you leave your home or have people over that aren’t from your home, mask up to protect yourself and others.

“Wear your mask. It is a fact, and it is the right thing to do. And it’s the responsible thing to do,” he continued

Lastly, Dwayne asks fans to “use me as an example”, that Covid-19 is unfortunately, very easy to catch and that it’s everyone’s duty to protect themselves and stay safe.
