Doris Burke, beloved NBA analyst for ESPN, tested positive for coronavirus.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Thankfully, Burke said she’s now doing well.

She said she began feeling symptoms while working the Mavericks-Nuggets game on March 11, the day the NBA suspended its season. After consulting with her family, she decided to get tested because of the large number of people she interacted with. Burke received her diagnosis just two days ago, after symptoms subsided.

A few days ago, in response to a Donald Trump press conference, Burke tweeted:

Fauci, who says Trump heeds the doctor’s advice, has been busy with other things – including getting interviewed by Stephen Curry to educate the public about coronavirus.

Now, Burke is doing her part to increase understanding of coronavirus. The podcast is worth a listen.
