As the United States and other parts of the world began to reopen, Derrick Rose has rebounded from a recent battle with COVID-19 and has a message for those who think the horrors of the virus are behind us.
Rose rejoined the Knicks after an eight-game absence and revealed to reports that he and his family were suffering from COVID-19.
“It’s real. The COVID thing, I know a lot of people overlook it, but it’s very serious. It’s real … I had the flu. It was nothing like the flu … It was that for ten,” Rose told The Athletic .
The last time Rose played was on February 28, where he was enjoying a hot streak after rejoining the Knicks after a trade from the Detroit Pistons.
