Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell have been declared coronavirus-free by the state’s health department.

Gobert and Mitchell were the first two NBA players to test positive, which led to the NBA suspending its season earlier this month.

Gobert would later apologize for the now-infamous stunt where he touched all the microphones at a post-game press conference after dismissing the coronavirus panic as an overreaction.

Three more NBA players have since tested positive for COVID-19 – Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant, Boston’s Marcus Smart and Detroit’s Christian Wood.

Did Gobert’s dumb stunt ironically end up creating more awareness about the coronavirus threat?
