Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller tweeted Thursday that he is negative for the coronavirus, two weeks after announcing he had been diagnosed with it.
On April 16, Miller announced his diagnosis, saying he went public to emphasize that anyone can be afflicted with the virus.
He was under the care of the Broncos’ doctors and remained in isolation in the area. Miller, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, told ESPN that he had tried to take every precaution over the past month, but he still contracted the virus.

Miller, who has asthma, said he elected to get tested after he had started to have a cough about six days prior and his inhaler “wasn’t working like it normally should.”
“It’s very, very serious,” Miller, 31, added. “It’s my job to keep my body in tiptop shape, and I feel my body is in tiptop shape. If I can get this, anybody can get this.”
