NBA Player Karl-Anthony Towns Reveals Mom In Coma Due To Coronavirus

Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns said his mother is in the hospital and now in a medically-induced coma as she battles COVID-19, an illness caused by a novel strain of coronavirus.

Towns said his parents weren't feeling well last week, so he and his sister advised them to get tested for the coronavirus. "And after a couple days of not showing any signs of improvement, I was very adamant on the first day to go to a hospital and seek further evaluation".

"I don't think anyone really understood what it was ... she kept getting worse, she kept getting worse". Her fever remained high, her lungs and cough were getting worse, meanwhile medical professionals were doing all they could.

Eventually, Towns' dad was released from the hospital and is now quarantined at his house.

"Praying for all of us at this hard time".

"I felt she was turning a corner", Towns said, describing a brief stint of progress.

Half-Life: Description from Valve About Possible Mode to Remove VR from Alyx
Described as the return of the legendary Half-Life series, Half-Life: Alyx finally met with game lovers. That's because it's a VR-only game, and the vast majority of PC gamers don't have access to a VR setup.

Karl-Anthony says a fever ravaged her. with Cruz's 103-degree temp only falling to 101.9 after meds - and then re-spiking nearly immediately after. I haven't talked to her, haven't been able to obviously communicate with her, I've just been getting updates on her condition. "She was deteriorating daily".

"That's why I made this video, so people understand that the severity of this disease is real".

"Me and my family are going to keep fighting this. And I'll talk to you later".

Now, Towns, who donated $100,000 to the Mayo Clinic to help it ramp up its coronavirus testing efforts before his mom fell ill, said he is trying to maintain a positive attitude for himself and his family to get through this ordeal.

"We can beat this, but this is serious and we need to take every precaution", Towns wrote in the caption to the video. "I hope my story helps", he said. It's rough. Day by day, we'll see how it goes and stay positive. "We're going to win". Towns said his father, Karl Sr., was self-isolating at home. I hope my story gives you the correct information. Send my love to all your families. "The hospital was doing everything they can, I was doing everything I could". "And we're gonna rejoice when she does". The Timberwolves big man also expressed his belief that his mom can overcome the challenge because she is the strongest woman he knows.
