Anthony Davis opened up on the coronavirus pandemic, admitting the situation is getting scarier as the days go by.

The superstar of the Los Angeles Lakers, who was tested negative for the virus, is trying to keep himself informed about the pandemic as much as possible.

“I just saw yesterday the United States became number one in cases. It’s kind of just getting out of hand. I’m trying to stay as safe as possible, doing what our team doctors told us and just trying to have a good spirit about everything and tell the people I can reach out to, to stay safe.

Obviously it’s a tragedy and devastating. There’s a sadness of what’s going on with our players around the league, our players families and everyone around the world.

When a lot of people are going through it and able to share their stories and share the severity of the situation it helps everyone out. It opens people’s eyes…a lot of people aren’t too informed about it,” Davis told Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times.

The NBA decided to suspend the season for at least 30 days, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
