FaZe Clan superstar Coldzera has been diagnosed with COVID-19, the CS:GO player revealed on his Instagram.
Last night Coldzera told his Instagram followers that he had contracted COVID-19, but did not provide further details on his diagnosis.
“Yeah corona, you got me,” he told his followers last night, according to a translation.
Although it’s unclear when Coldzera contracted the virus, COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets and contact routes, according to the U.K. government. He recently celebrated his 26th birthday alongside fellow CS:GO players LUCAS1, kNgV-, and HEN1.
Coldzera isn’t the first CS:GO player to contract the virus. Dignitas player Friberg revealed that he had contracted the virus on Oct. 27, but later informed his followers that he felt better on Nov. 2, but still experienced common symptoms including lack of taste and smell.
Finally feeling better, had 10 days with high fever, still haven't got my smell & taste back but hopefully it'll come back soon. Don't wish anyone gets this virus so make sure to keep distance and stay safe everyone!— Adam Friberg (@fribergCS) November 2, 2020
Na’Vi player Perfecto said that his “condition worsened” on Oct. 18 following contraction of the virus, which led to an immediate rescheduling of Na’Vi’s tie against forZe at IEM New York CIS last month. This match took place on Oct. 20, instead, in which Na’Vi lost 2-0.
I feel bad for a whole week, and in recent days my condition has worsened. And today a positive test for coronavirus came. Hope everything goes well, be careful guys.— Ilya Zalutskiy (@perfectocsgo) October 18, 2020
