ESPN broadcaster Doris Burke tests positive for COVID-19

ESPN broadcaster Doris Burke tested positive for the coronavirus, according to ESPN's .

She broke the news to Wojnarowski on his podcast, sharing that she felt symptoms on March 11 — the same day she worked the Denver Nuggets-Dallas Mavericks game on the final night of action
before the NBA suspended its season.

“I’m doing well,” Burke told Wojnarowski, “I’m doing quite well now, to be perfectly honest with you.”

Burke recalled the first time she experienced symptoms, and it was before the game even started.

“I remember sitting at lunch with my broadcast crew for that evening,” Burke said. “I looked at my colleagues ... and said ‘I am so tired right now. My head is pounding.’”

She added that her fatigue caused her to get tested for the virus in a Philadelphia hospital on March 17.

nb游戏平台It's a good thing Burke got tested, especially considering she constantly travels and was in close proximity with many other NBA players and officials on a regular basis.
