David and Victoria Beckham reportedly tested positive for Coronavirus earlier this year after partying in Los Angeles.
According to The Sun newspaper, the football legend, 45, and his designer wife,
46, feared they were ‘super-spreaders’ after their employees including relatives
and friends also caught the virus.
The couple were said to have enjoyed a trip to the UK for their son Brooklyn’s 21st
birthday on March 4th, before jetting back over to America on March 11th ahead of
the launch of David’s new football team, Inter Miami, in Florida, before finally
returning to the Cotswolds by March 19th, ahead of lockdown.
Tests later confirmed the couple’s COVID-19 diagnosis after the father-of-four began
to feel unwell, with the former Spice Girl developing a sore throat and a high
temperature soon after.
A source told The Sun: ‘It was an absolute nightmare scenario,’ explaining how David
was in LA schmoozing on behalf of his club Inter Miami, when Victoria and their
children flew over to support him.
‘They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had
promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club
dignitaries,’ claimed the insider.
“They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion.”
When they returned back to Maimi, the source went on, “David started to feel ill
and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature.
“At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards, and
assistants fell ill — a couple of them very badly so.
“Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks.
“She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimise all future risk.
After making full recoveries, the couple checked in regularly with their team and
even sent “care packages” to at least two staff members who were particularly
Victoria and David had swab and antibody tests to ensure they no longer had the virus before jetting off on holiday to Greece and Italy.
