Child may have contracted coronavirus from NBA player
A Rhode Island police chief says a young resident who is among the nine additional cases of the coronavirus announced Friday may have contracted it from an NBA player.
Westerly Police Chief Shawn Lacey said Friday that the child, who he did not name, attended a Boston Celtics game last week and got an autograph from an infected player, who he also did not name, the Providence Journal reported.
The Celtics played the Utah Jazz on March 6; two Jazz players — stars Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert — have since tested positive for the coronavirus.
Another Westerly youth also contracted the virus after recently returning from a cruise to the Bahamas, said Lacey, who is also the acting town manager.
