Joel Embiid is really active during the COVID-19 pandemic, as he is trying to help in different ways the people in the region of Philadelphia.

As a result, Embiid, along with the Sixers’ owners, will fund testing for 1,000 health care workers in the region, per ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

“As Philadelphia prepares to cope with the spread of COVID-19, my heart goes out to all of the doctors and nurses who put themselves at risk of infection in order to help those in need,” Embiid said.

“If the doctors and nurses get sick, then there is no one to help the rest of us who might get really sick over the next month.”

In recent weeks, the 76ers superstar pledged $500,000 to support medical relief efforts — like providing more personal protective equipment, which is in short supply all over the USA due to the coronavirus crisis.
