SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — ESPN NBA analyst Doris Burke unveiled that she tested positive for COVID-19 in Friday’s episode of The Woj Pod, hosted by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Burke said that she was tested on March 17 but didn’t get the results back until March 25, when she learned she had a positive diagnosis.
“I started to believe, even though my symptoms did not seem to line up with the typical symptoms, I believed, given the nature of my profession, the number of people I encounter, that I did in fact have exposure to the virus,” Burke told Woj.
Burke was working the Denver Nuggets-Dallas Mavericks game, and said she remembers feeling extremely tired around lunchtime. She said the fatigue got so bad that she couldn’t be out of her bed for more than five minutes.
“Man, I am so tired right now and my head is pounding,” Burke said as she recalled how she was feeling. “And looking back, those were my symptoms. And we’ve heard so much about shortness of breath, fever, tightness in your chest, chills, body aches, etc.”
Burke said she is now symptom-free.
She told Woj she feels grateful to be feeling a lot better. She is continuing to distance herself from others.
