Charles Barkley tests negative for coronavirus

Good news. Charles Barkley has tested negative for coronavirus.

As most of you presumably know, “testing negative” for a bad thing is good. It means the person does not have that bad thing.

Here’s the New York Post:

Charles Barkley has tested negative for COVID-19, Turner Sports announced on Monday.

Barkley, 57, made the fact that he was taking the test public after the NBA suspended its season. Barkley said he hadn’t been feeling well on “Inside The NBA” and took the test out of caution on March 12. He had been feeling better, but just got the results on Monday.

All everybody needs to be doing right now, these next few weeks, is to stay home.
