Knox announced that his mother lost an aunt, and his father lost a close friend, both to COVID-19 this week. He also asked that we all stay safe and help protect others.
COVID hit close to home. My mom lost her aunt and my dad lost a close friend yesterday. People this thing is real. Stay safe and help protect lives— Kev (@KevKnox) July 29, 2020
This isn’t the first Wildcat to be affected by coronavirus, as well as know that Karl-Anthony Towns tragically lost his mother Jackie earlier this year to coronavirus, in one of the more heartbreaking moments this year.
This also comes just a day after Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. went on Instagram and said that COVID-19 was a form “population control” by the government, something the NBA commissioner said was “unfortunate.”
People, please be safe out there. Wear a mask, and check your sources. Please keep Knox’s family in your prayers during their difficult time.
