Prior to getting tested, he had been self-quarantined and taking extra precautions including wearing gloves and masks. “My test came back positive so y’all gotta take this stuff serious. Stay at home, self-quarantine,” he said. “Do not come outside for however long they’re saying. If you have symptoms, you need to get checked out or whatever.”

He had symptoms including fever and cough, but he’s doing OK. “I’m good. I don’t got no problems right now. The other day I had a slight fever and a cough. I feel better now. I don’t have no fever,” he added.

He also issued a warning to others who may not be taking the pandemic seriously. “I feel like I’m good, but y’all better take it serious. It’s real out here.”

Drake took a test after spending time with Durant and it came back negative, while Meek Mill has revealed that he had “flu like symptoms” in December, but a doctor was unable to diagnose him.
