The Rock reveals family coronavirus battle

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his entire family tested positive for coronavirus but have made a full recovery, the professional wrestler turned Hollywood A-lister said Wednesday.

Johnson, the world’s top-paid actor, urged his 196 million Instagram followers to wear and avoid “politicizing” the after revealing that he, his wife and two young daughters had picked up from close family friends.

“This has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family,” said Johnson.

“I wish was only me tested positive. But wasn’t — was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut,” he added.

The “Jumanji” actor’s young children Jasmine and Tiana Gia had few symptoms, but Johnson and his wife Lauren “had a rough go,” he said.

The coronavirus has brought Hollywood to a virtual standstill, with movie productions only recently re-starting in Los Angeles under strict conditions and with skeleton crews.

After initially being praised for its response to the disease, California has suffered more cases than any state — more than 700,000 — and was hit with a record number of deaths in August.

Top Hollywood stars including Tom Hanks, Antonio Banderas and Idris Elba have tested positive for the illness but made full recoveries.

“We are counting our blessings right now because we’re well aware that isn’t always the case that you get on the other end of stronger and healthier,” said Johnson.

He added: “It baffles me that some people out there — including some — will take this idea of wearing and make it part of a political agenda, politicizing it.

“It has nothing to do with . Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is the right thing to do.”
