A camera operator, who recorded inside the Utah Jazz locker after the Pistons-Jazz game in Detroit on March 7, is fighting coronavirus and is in induced coma, according to Vincent Goodwill and Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports.

The person, whose identity has not been disclosed, is in his 50s. He developed symptoms a week after the game. Since none of the home remedies worked, he went to the hospital.

After a medical examination, it has been determined that his oxygen levels are too low. The doctors were unable to raise them and decided to put him in coma.

Meanwhile, Detroit’s Christian Wood, who took part in the game and had coronavirus, has reportedly fully recovered.
