Hollywood Actor and former wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, 47, broke the news to his fans that he and his family had tested positive for coronavirus. His wife Lauren Hashian, 35, and their two daughters two-year-old Tiana and four-year-old Jasmine, who the couple welcomed in 2015 and 2018, are now “on the other end of it” and are “no longer contagious.”
He revealed their health battle in an Instagram video, where he addressed his 196million followers, describing the diagnosis as “one of the most challenging and difficult” things that they’ve ever had to go through as a family.
“I just wanted to give you an update about some of the things that I’ve been going through on my end for the past two and a half to three weeks now,” he began.
“We all tested positive for Covid-19.
“Testing positive for Covid-19 is much different that overcoming nasty injuries or being evicted or even being broke which I have been more than a few times,” he admitted, referring to past struggles he’s been through.

“Stay healthy, my friends. DJ #controlthecontrollables.”
Fans rushed to the comments section to share their love and well wishes with the actor and his love ones.
“So grateful you and your family are healthy @therock. Respect highly how open and honest you are with the world about your experiences,” one praised.
Another said: “Thank you for speaking your truth! As a frontline nurse in a hospital there is NOTHING more disheartening than clocking out from work, then walking outside only to see members of your community CONTINUE to congregate in large groups with NO MASKS ON! You need to say this louder for the people in the back!”
“Glad to hear you and your family on are the mend, and thank you for transparency in dealing with it! Great advice for all of us who are feeling cooped up and have a need to socialise, to remember not to let our guard down!” a third pointed out.
