Kingston, Aug 24 (Prensa Latina) Jamaican athletic legend Usain Bolt tested positive for the Covid-19 disease, local media reported today.
 
According to Loop News, the Olympic and world multi-medalist in the 100 and 200 meter sprints was infected with the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, just days after celebrating a party for his 34 years.

The newspaper also noted that Bolt's guests include England soccer star Raheem Sterling.

According to radio station Nationwide90fm, the greatest sprinter of all time fell ill with the Covid-19 virus and will spend time in self-isolation at home as a result.

The publication points out that the 34-year-old man (August 21, 1986) took a test for the virus a few days ago and discovered yesterday that he had tested positive for Covid-19.

Bolt's contagion comes amid an increase in infections from the pandemic in Jamaica, which in the past 24 hours reported 116 new cases, its largest increase in a day.

The health authorities attributed the increase to 1,529 Covid-19 patients to the large number of meetings and parties during the first week of August, when the country celebrated Emancipation and Independence Day.
