Once again people need to be reminded that celebrities are, like us, just normal folks and aren’t immune against COVID-19.
Superstar couple, David and Victoria Beckham were confirmed to have been infected with COVID-19 in March.
Most likely caught it in The US
According to The Daily Mail, the Beckhams spent their time flying between the UK and US in March.
An unnamed friend of the Beckhams told The Sun that David was on duty for his club Inter Miami on 1 Mar, and was playing their first game away at the Los Angeles Football Club.
His family flew to the US with him to show support.
It was believed that this is when the couple were infected with COVID-19.
“They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries.”
After a few days, the couple flew back to London to celebrate their eldest son Brooklyn’s 21st birthday in their Cotswolds Mansion.
The party was attended by celebrities such as Brooklyn’s fiancee and billionaire heiress Nicola Peltz, Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Holly, rapper Stormzy and Spice Girl Emma Bunton.
The couple returned to Miami a few days later after the celebration.
After returning to the UK, the same friend said, “David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature.”
The couple were later diagnosed with COVID-19.
The source also added that at the same time, several people in their team including drivers, bodyguards and assistants fell ill.
Followed Strict Quarantine Procedures
The friend said that it “was a rough few weeks” especially for Victoria, as she feared that she and her husband could be “super-spreaders”.
“Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks.”
The couple had since made a full recovery.
It is understood that they also checked in regularly with their team and have sent “care packages” to at least two of the staff members who were particularly badly affected.
The couple had to get swab and antibody tests to ensure that they were not infectious before travelling to Italy and Greece for their holiday.
Fearing that they might break social distancing rules, the couple had to cancel their middle son Romeo’s 18th birthday party.
