‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Star Michael Rooker Got COVID and Says It Was Bad
Guardians of the Galaxy Star Michael rooker just revealed his fight with the coronavirus … and it was really serious.
Rooker, who also stars in “The Walking Dead” and the upcoming “Suicide Squad,” says the virus has taken over his body. He said, almost clinically, “… there isn’t much you can do on the outside, to fight COVID-19 once it has entered your body,” adding : “And I have to let you do it. Everyone knows it’s been quite a battle.”
He said he isolated himself in an Airstream during his illness. And, he said he decided not to take “any extra drugs, vitamins or supplements” while he was trying to recover. His reasoning … “I felt that if my immune system wasn’t already prepared for this battle, loading up with all that extra stuff would only do me damage because the kidneys and life would have been severely stressed.”
Michael proudly posted his negative test results, saying, “So just so you know the end result of all these daily battles has come to an end,” Rooker said. “My body won the WAR! Covid fought well … but in the end he got knocked out! [sic] my immune system .. 1,2, punch to the head, 2 body hits and a left hook upper right cut … “End of story”
Many celebrities have contracted the virus, including The Rock, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Andy Cohen, Idris Elba, Alyssa Milano, Lena Dunham, Brian Cox, Antonia Banderas, Madonna and Pink.
