Dwayne Johnson who is also popularly known as “The Rock” is a wrestler turned actor. He and his family have tested COVID-19 positive.

He said that he, his wife and the two daughters were tested COVID positive despite being “disciplined” about health protection.

He said the positive tests were "a kick in the gut".

Now, he added, "we're on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we're healthy."

Johnson, 48, said he, his wife Lauren, 35, and their daughters Jasmine and Tiana, aged four and two, contracted the virus about two-and-a-half weeks ago.

 He mentioned that they got it from "very close family friends" who, in turn, had no idea how they had been infected.

He took his Instagram to share it with his friends, "I can tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family,"

"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," he added.

"My number one priority is to always protect my family."

"We are counting our blessings right now because we're well aware that it isn't always the case that you get on the other end of Covid-19 stronger and healthier," said Johnson.

"It baffles me that some people out there, including some politicians, will take this idea of wearing masks and make it part of a political agenda.

"It has nothing to do with politics. Wear your mask. It is a fact. And it is the right thing to do." He concluded.

He became a huge success in sports before he starred in blockbuster movies such as, The Scorpion King, Fast & Furious 6 and Jumanji.
