LOS AN­GE­LES (AP) — Dwayne "The Rock" John­son shared some un­for­tu­nate news on his home front: He and his fam­ily tested pos­i­tive for the coro­n­avirus.

John­son an­nounced their di­ag­no­sis in an 11-plus minute video on In­sta­gram on Wed­nes­day. He said he was shocked af­ter hear­ing their pos­i­tive tests, calling the or­deal "one of the most chal­leng­ing and dif­fi­cult things we've ever had to en­dure."

The ac­tor said he along with his wife, Lau­ren Hashian, and two young daugh­ters con­tracted the virus, but have now re­cov­ered. He said his daugh­ters "bounced back" af­ter hav­ing sore throats for a cou­ple days.

But for John­son and his wife, he said they both had a "rough go."

John­son said he and his fam­ily caught the virus from close fam­ily friends, who told him they did not know where they con­tracted the virus.

John­son said the or­deal has made him more con­scious. He made sev­eral sug­ges­tions to com­bat the virus such as wear­ing a mask, boost your im­mune sys­tem and com­mit to well­ness.
