Talk about doing something foolish and dangerous! With the major concern about the COVD-19 coronavirus outbreak and the ensuing hysteria, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert playfully touched all of the microphones and phones from the media after participating at a press conference. (Yes, there’s video.)

A couple of days later, Gobert tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The basketball player was mocking the newly implemented rules from the NBA to control the spread of the deadly virus. The rules stipulated 6 to 8 feet of distance between the players and the reporters during all media occurrences.
Gobert issued a public apology on Instagram after news got out that he contracted the virus.
