Just when we thought the Coronavirus pandemic was starting to show a slow down, another celebrity couple has now contracted the virus. Reports have surfaced which suggest that David and Victoria Beckham are the latest celebrities to contract the virus. According to a leading British daily, the celebrity couple battled with the disease secretly after they were said to have caught it while partying in the United States.
A number of relatives and staff members of the couple also contracted the virus following the launch of the former England football team captain’s new club. The couple underwent tests which came out to be positive for the virus. A close friend to the couple confirmed the news, sharing, “It was an absolute nightmare scenario. David was on duty for his club Inter Miami, and Victoria and the family flew down to support him. They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries. They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion,” the source said.
The couple also celebrated their eldest son Brooklyn’s 21st birthday before they headed off to Miami for a short break. The source further added, “David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature. At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards and assistants fell ill — a couple of them very badly so.” Adding to this, the source said, “Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks. She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders and did all she could to minimize all future risk. Not only was she poorly in bed, but she was also completely panicked. It was a rough few weeks.”
The couple has now fully made a full recovery and are regularly checking in with their teams. It is also believed that they have sent care packages to at least two of their staff members who were particularly badly affected. When the couple was reached for a comment, their spokesperson declined to comment.
