David and Victoria Beckham are the latest celebrities to open up about their struggles with Covid-19.
The pair started feeling ill after attending a swanky party in LA. A close friend of the family spoke to The Sun about the family’s battle with the virus back in March.
“It was an absolute nightmare scenario.” the source said.
“David was on duty for his club Inter Miami, and Victoria and the family flew down to support him.”
“They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries.”
“They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion.”
Upon their arrival back in the UK David started feeling poorly.
“David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature.” the source added.
“At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards and assistants fell ill — a couple of them very badly so.”
“Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks.”
“She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimise all future risk.”
“Not only was she poorly in bed, she was also completely panicked. It was a rough few weeks.”
The family have since been getting tests regularly to make sure they are virus free during their travels.
