The way Von Miller became the latest athlete to test positive for COVID-19 should serve as another eye-opener.
Miller said he took the coronavirus seriously. He had only left home to get food, but he still became the second NFL player to announce a positive COVID-19 test. (Rams center Brian Allen was the first.)
“I have people coming in the home in and out, workers, maids, people that do plumbing, everyday stuff,” Miller told the TODAY show on Friday. “But it was nothing crazy. I coughed and here we are.”
Miller said his symptoms started with a cough that worsened over time. Miller also has asthma and uses a nebulizer before football games and practices. His assistant urged him to get tested after his symptoms appeared.

“It all started with a simple cough,” Miller said. “I’m shocked. We’ve been taking this serious since day one.”
