NBA star Karl Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves recently revealed he had lost 7 members of his family to Covid19.
Towns said he first lost his mother Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, 58, last April due to Covid complications.
His father, Karl Sr., also contracted the disease, but survived.
“I have seen a lot of coffins in the last 7 to 8 months. I have a lot of people in my family who have gotten Covid,” he told ESPN sports.
Towns said the latest casualty was an uncle who succumbed last week.
