"About an hour ago, from the CDC, they told me that I have tested positive for the coronavirus back at the end of June," said Booker. "I never got my result back, but they called me today to tell me that back at the end of June when I got tested, I tested positive. I've had three tests since then and they all came back negative. It just goes to show how backed up we really are with this system we're working with. People are just finding out. I'm living proof. Thank God I'm still here and I have a healthy immune system. God spared me on this one, but I could have been one of the nearly 200,000 that didn't know I had this and I was gone and on my way to the next life."

He continued, "I know what I went through, it was a couple of weeks, and I had the headaches, the night sweats, I lost my taste and smell for two weeks. Thank God I was smart enough to quarantine from the family. I stayed away from everyone for a couple of weeks until I started feeling better."

Booker is just the latest former to reveal a positive COVID test. In recent weeks, The Rock, Kevin Nash, and Eve Tores also confirmed they had tested positive for the virus
