Usain Bolt fearing coronavirus after his surprise birthday bash

Usain Bolt is taking COVID-19 precautions in the aftermath of his surprise birthday bash in Jamaica.

The Olympic gold medalist sprinter took a COVID-19 test Saturday and is quarantining until he gets the results back, he announced Monday in an Instagram video.

“I’m just waking up, and like everybody else I checked social media, [which] is saying I am confirmed to have COVID-19,” Bolt said. “I am trying to be responsible, so I am going to stay in and stay here for my friends.

“I’m having no symptoms so I am going to quarantine myself and wait on the confirmation, to see what is the protocol and how I should go about quarantining myself. Until then, I am talking to all my friends and telling them anyone who has come into contact with me should, just to be safe, quarantine by themselves and just take it easy.”

As of Sunday, Jamaica had reported 1,529 positive COVID-19 tests and 16 deaths.
